Large handful of raw spinach

3-5 dandelion leaves, finely chopped

1 kale leaf

chia seeds

sliced almonds

raw pumpkin seeds

chopped raw walnuts (optional)

(In this picture, there are also wood sorrel leaves sprinkled on top of the salad!  Wood sorrel is a wild, edible (and tangy) weed that grows abundantly in most of the United States.)

Raspberry dressing:

1/4 cup raspberry vinegar

3-4 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or use a tiny amount of Stevia)

2 tsp dijon mustard

1/2 cup 100% pure olive oil

(check the ingredient label, if it does not say this it is probably cut down with canola oil)

Whisk all ingredients together.

1.  Toss spinach with chopped dandelion leaves and then assemble on plate.

2.  Sprinkle nuts on top of spinach, add dressing, enjoy!
