Walnut & Cherry Spinach Salad

Walnut & Cherry Spinach Salad 7

As spring approaches I am already thinking about my garden and fresh vegetables. Spinach is one of the first crops of spring so I decided to share a simple spinach salad. You can substitute any dried fruit instead of cherries. I used organic coconut sugar so my dressing looks darker. Coconut sugar is a tan color. If you must have sugar it is a better choice than white sugar which I rarely use. Coconut sugar is unrefined, made from fresh coconut tree sap, collected from the cut flower buds. One of the lowest glycemic index sweeteners on the market. It’s highly nutritious and a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and B vitamins.

8 ounces baby spinach
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup sugar, I used coconut sugar
1 teaspoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Toast the chopped walnuts in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 5 minutes or until toasted.
In a small bowl whisk together sugar, onion, paprika, vinegar and oil. Set aside.
