SPINACH SALAD FOR SPRING AND SFRUITS & VEGETABLES, EAT 5 TO 9 A DAYUMMER

Serves 2
Provides 2 ½ fruit and vegetable servings per person

Try creating a spinach salad with new varieties of fruits and vegetables as seasonal produce comes to the markets. Start with 3 cups of raw baby spinach for 2 people (1.5 cups per person.). In the spring, add a cup of diagonally cut sugar snap peas or fresh strawberry halves. As the season progresses, change to fresh blueberries, peaches, or nectarines. Just 1 cup of colorful fruits and vegetables from a local farmers market, roadside stand, or supermarket added to your salad gives each person an extra serving toward the recommended goal of 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Plus, it adds elegance to an otherwise average dish.

• 3 cups baby spinach leaves, well washed and dried
• 1 cup seasonal fresh vegetables or fruits of your choice such as raw sugar snap peas, strawberry halves, blueberries, or peach slices
• 3 tablespoons low-fat vinaigrette salad dressing
• ¼ teaspoon black pepper

 
Place the spinach and seasonal fruits or vegetables in a large bowl.

The more colors you add to your diet, the more cancer fighting nutrients you'll get.

Toss with the dressing and serve.
