How To Make Berry Spinach Salad with Sunflower Seeds
Quickly toss this spinach salad made with berries and seasoned sunflower seeds for your next tasty side! A refreshing salad made in just 15 minutes.
Warm a small non-stick skillet over medium heat, then add the sunflower seeds.
Let the sunflower seeds warm up a bit, then pour in the maple syrup, a pinch of salt, and a tiny dash of cayenne pepper, if desired.
Toast the seeds for 3 to 5 minutes while stirring constantly until most of the maple syrup has evaporated and the sunflower seeds are turning lightly golden on the edges. Transfer the seeds to a plate to cool.
In a serving bowl, combine the spinach, berries, crumbled goat cheese, and sunflower seeds.
In a small measuring cup or bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, salt, and pepper until emulsified.
Drizzle in enough vinaigrette to lightly coat the leaves, then gently toss. Serve, and enjoy!
