Avocado Artichoke Arugula & Spinach Salad

Avocado Artichoke Arugula & Spinach Salad // nutritionstripped.com Avocado Artichoke Arugula & Spinach Salad. How’s that title for some alliteration. Today I’m here to share one of my current food phases in the salad world, Avocado Artichoke Arugula & Spinach Salad. I get into food phases, which by my definition is eating a certain meal or food daily because you enjoy it so much and can’t get enough of it! This salad has been in my food phase as of late and who can blame me? It’s a delicious combination of sweet, zesty, and earthy flavors; and it’s incredibly simple to make.

This salad is a flavor explosion in a bowl! Filled with peppery arugula, sweet spinach, creamy avocado, earthy artichoke hearts, zesty red onion, refreshing cucumber, and nutty hemp seeds. The Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing is a great dressing to compliment the flavors and brighten it up a bit with the citrus. I promise this unique salad will be great to incorporate into your salad recipe box.

Artichoke love // fiber, fiber, and more fiber! Artichokes have about 7g of fiber per artichoke. They’re also full of vitamin C, K, folate, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, and copper.

Arugula has a hefty amount of vitamin A, C, K, folate, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. It has a peppery taste and very delicate leafs. A tip when working with arugula is to rinse, rinse, rinse! Arugula when bought in a bundle organically, has a lot of sand in between the leaves. I typically fill a large bowl of cold water and dunk the arugula leaves in and out, shaking off the excess sand, and repeat until the water is clear and free of sand. The last thing you want is gritty salad…

    I heard that spinach and some other vegetables can’t be eaten raw, I’m so confused right now! Can you tell me which vegetables can’t be eaten raw and why so?

    • says

      Hi Ash, mostly all vegetables can be eaten raw with the exception of root vegetables and several others- spinach can always be eaten raw unless you are an individual where it would need to be cooked from a disease state/digestive disfunction issue- I can’t speak for everyone this is just a general answer!
