Total Time 15 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 6 oz. baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup red onion halved and thinly sliced (1/2 cup total)
  • 5 button mushrooms sliced
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 tomato diced, or use 1 orange, sliced
  • 6 .4 oz. chunk light tuna packed in water (sold in pouches rather than cans), drained, or use white beans or chickpeas

Instructions
 

  • For the dressing, whisk together the oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, and salt until the ingredients emulsify (combine and thicken).
  • In a large serving bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Toss it with the dressing just before serving it.

Notes

Do Ahead or Delegate: Prepare the salad dressing, slice the onion and mushrooms, dice the tomato or slice the orange.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Add a handful of toasted walnuts or pine nuts for some extra crunch, and season the salad with grated Parmesan cheese and/or freshly ground black pepper.
Tip: If you're making vinaigrette dressing and you find that you're out of vinegar, consider substituting grapefruit or lemon juice for the vinegar. They are both acidic, and will impart a taste similar to vinegar.
