Each year, an estimated 125,000 square miles of rainforest are permanently destroyed, bringing about the extinction of approximately 1,000 plant and animal species.
So I got the idea, and the name, of this salad from Biaggi’s restaurant. They are an Italian restaurant chain. It is a light, refreshing salad. Plus, the olive oil helps you take in more of the spinach’s carotenoids, antioxidants that boost eye and skin health. Just mix the following ingredients to make the salad and salad dressing.
- Kalamata olives (I prefer sliced)
- Feta cheese (omit and it is vegan!)
- Cucumber slices
- Sliced baby bella mushrooms
- Cherry tomatoes
- Chia seeds
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Red wine vinegar
