5 Tasty Vegan Recipes for Easter

  • 3 of 6

Spinach and strawberry salad

2. Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Sure, vegans eat more than just salad, but nothing says spring to me like a fresh, spinach salad tossed with strawberries and almonds.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups of spinach, chopped
  • 2 cups of strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 Haas avocado, diced
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon-style prepared mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1. In a large bowl, toss together the spinach, strawberries, almond, and avocado.

2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. You can either toss the dressing in with the salad, or pass it on the side.

I am not vegan and tire of the lectures from some such as eating animals is not Christian and the like but one can always incorporate vegan recipes into the menu for variety-which is the spice of life. Nothing like tasty recipes that are enjoyable.

It looks delicious, I'm definitely trying this one.

This strawberry spinach salad is linked to an article about vegans and vegetarians adapting the Atkins diet. I would like to see the nutritional breakdown of this recipe. Trying to stay under 50g of carbs a day is difficult. especially with an all plant based diet. Fruit would be almost eliminated from the diet completely, so I would be surprised if this recipe would be doable for anyone following Atkikns. It would probably take up too large a portion of the day's carb allowance.

Good recipes, though I would look for substitutes for items such as soy milk, sugar and bleached white flour to make the recipes healthier.

Thank you, Becky, we'll definitely try those. Love the sound (and the photo) of the spinach and strawberry salad - can't wait to taste it.
