Spinach cabbage salad with honey lemon dressing


Welcome to February, the month of love. In the spirit of ♥ I made this super simple spinach red cabbage salad with grape tomato hearts. Aren’t they pretty? The other night, we had lots of fresh baby spinach at home so I couldn’t resist making a quick salad. I chopped some purple cabbage, shredded some carrots and added to the spinach. It was so fresh, crunchy and delicious. Too good to not share!

Perhaps what I love most about this salad is the honey lemon dressing. It is sweet, slightly tangy and pairs well with the crispy vegetables. AND it is totally healthy!

To make the dressing, you need freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey, extra virgin olive oil, salt and some ground black pepper.

Mix them all together. You can put them in a bottle and shake if you like. And viola, you have a delicious guilt-free salad dressing.
