OK, this fantastic vegan spinach salad is a new favorite on our homestead. I made it to serve alongside a big plate of spaghetti arribbiata the other night, and the hubby said this was his new favorite. 
 
No boring salads here – this bowl is loaded with fresh tomatoes, sliced avocado, crunchy cucumbers and bell pepper, and a simple dressing.
 
This salad is easy enough for a weeknight, but fancy enough to make for guests or for entertaining. This is a great ‘no one will know it’s vegan’ salad, which is loaded with flavor and richness. The walnuts, avocado, and olive oil bring plenty of healthy fats that also take this salad to the next level.

Make Spinach Salad Vegan for a Healthier Version

This vegan spinach salad  is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier plant-based meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

  • Baby Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Bell Peppers
  • Avocado
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar, which gives this dressing a little extra tang which is really fantastic! I love using this organic apple cider vinegar with the mother which has a great flavor.  I think it gives a nice extra sweetness and depth.
  • Whole Grain Dijon Mustard – for a really nice flavor and texture, this whole grain dijon is a favorite in our pantry… I’d stay clear from yellow prepared mustard for this recipe.
  • Agave Syrup:  I really like using this raw organic agave syrup because it’s a sustainable sweetener, plus it’s an inexpensive natural sweetener so I always keep a few of these bottles in my pantry.
  • Garlic
