Healthy Beet Salad with fresh sweet baby spinach, kale lettuce, nuts, feta cheese and toast  melted

I have gotten out of the habit of salads for lunch. I went through a couple of weeks where I had a delicious mandarin chicken salad with ginger sesame dressing for lunch every day. But it’s been about 3 weeks since I’ve had salads for lunch, what with all the leftovers we’ve had. So I decided to break that streak with a fresh spinach salad. I enjoy baby spinach, so I thought I’d start with a pile of that on my plate. Top the spinach with tender, roasted beets that have been thinly sliced. I sprinkled on a little fat free feta and a few walnuts. Then I simply drizzle over a couple of tablespoons of my favorite fat free vinaigrette. It was a great way to get myself back into the healthier choices for lunch. It was bright, refreshing and incredibly delicious.
