STRAWBERRY & SPINACH SALAD (Vegan option)

This summer berry salad may taste decadent, but it’s loaded with healthy nutrients and antioxidants.

Its diverse flavours and textures are a delight for the tastebuds; mild spinach, creamy avocado and

cottage cheese contrast perfectly with tangy blueberries. Add extra crunch with a sprinkle of

almonds.
