  • 5 ounces (about 5 cups) organic baby spinach
  • 1 12-ounce bag frozen strawberries, defrosted and sliced in half
Instructions
  1. To make dressing, blend cashews or cashew butter with soy milk and apple in a high powered blender until smooth. Add the currants and blend well.
  2. Pile the lettuce and spinach leaves on a plate and lay the strawberries on top. Pour the juice from the strawberries over the greens.

Notes

I made double the salad and for the dressing I doubled everything except the cashews. It was so good! I also used fresh strawberries. My son added some blueberries to his salad and it was a great addition.
