Ingredients

  • 300 g baby spinach
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 150 g ripe strawberries
  • 40 g blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 ts honey
  • 1/2 ts paprika powder

Preparation

Make the dressing by mixing all the liquid ingredients with the paprika and salt.

If you don’t have baby spinach, cut the leaves of normal spinach in half. Cut the avocado in small pieces, the strawberries – in slices. Chop the walnuts roughly.

In a big bowl mix the spinach with the avocado. Toss the berries and nuts on top and pour the dressing. Enjoy your delicious and colourful meal!
