V Celery Leaf Salad with honey vinaigrette
Adding grilled chicken, edamame or tofu to this refreshing summer dish is a great way to get some protein into your meal - a great way to use your celery to it's fullest!
For the Salad
2 cups of celery leaves
1 cup of baby spinach
1/2 cup of quartered strawberries, about 6-8 berries
1/8 cup smoked almonds
For the Honey Vinaigrette:
2 teaspoons brown rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1. In a medium-sized bowl, toss together the celery leaves, baby spinach, strawberries and smoked almonds.
2. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown rice vinegar, salt and honey and whisk with a fork. Then drizzle in the olive oil while whisking with the fork. The honey will act as an emulsifier to keep the vinaigrette together.
3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.
