Kiwi and Strawberry Spinach Salad

Valentina

Picture it: a fruity combination of fresh strawberries, kiwis, greens, swathed in a balsamic and olive oil vinaigrette. In addition to great flavor, this recipe was created as a way to support healthy bones following a wrist injury. Here's how: spinach and pumpkin seeds are great plant-based sources of iron, an important nutrient for bone health. It's been shown that iron is better absorbed when consumed alongside vitamin C, such as that found in the strawberries and kiwis in this recipe. Nerd alert.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Aim to use a good quality, syrupy balsamic vinegar here. Consider balsamic vinegar like a bottle of wine - the flavor ranges can be huge, and it's the type of ingredient that's worth spending a little extra on.
