This Apple Avocado Spinach Salad recipe is made with a delectable mix of sweet and savory ingredients, and dressed with a tangy apple cider vinaigrette. Quick, healthy and always a crowd favorite!
You are going to love this fresh, flavorful salad because it uses nutritious ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to prepare. It is the perfect salad for entertaining or bringing along to a potluck anytime of the year.
The core elements of this salad are fresh baby spinach with sliced apple, creamy avocado, soft crumbled goat cheese, dried cranberries and chopped pecans, tossed in a delicious apple cider vinaigrette.
When preparing the dressing, I recommend shaking the ingredients together in a jar rather than whisking them together in a bowl, as I find the vinaigrette emulsifies much more easily that way. If you are making this salad in advance for a party, do not add the dressing until you are ready to serve. This will keep the salad crisp and prevent it from becoming soggy.
Just before serving, drizzle salad with dressing and toss to coat.
