Spinach Salad with Citrus Flavour

A delicious and interesting salad suitable for entertaining or as a first course. The base of this salad comes from French cuisine with slight modifications to suit Mediterranean cuisine.

For those who don’t like Roquefort ripe cheeses, it can be replaced with grated parmesan cheese and in this case, 1/3 cup is enough. Another interesting option is mozzarella pearls that also fit in perfectly with this salad.

Vegans can cut half a small package of tofu into small cubes, fry the cubes on all sides until they are golden, and then sprinkle them over the salad.

The spinach itself is a health bomb:

  • Strengthens muscles
  • Stops osteoporosis deterioration due to the fact that it contains vitamin K, which on the one hand improves calcium absorption, and on the other hand, prevents its depletion
  • Maintains heart health
  • Helps prevent nervous system diseases
  • Very healthy for diabetics because it reduces glucose levels, increases insulin absorption, and prevents cell oxidation
  • Rich in goodness: vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, zinc, calcium, magnesium, folate (which helps maintain brain health), iron, vegetable protein, potassium (therefore helps lower blood pressure), and dietary fiber
  • It has lutein (antioxidant) and beta-carotene that keep your eyes and vision healthy

Because every food loses a lot of its nutritional value in cooking, it is always advisable to eat vegetables and fruits as fresh as possible. Spinach salad is an excellent solution to get all the good this vegetable has to offer.


2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons natural orange juice

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey or agave

A pinch of salt

1 purple onion thinly sliced to semicircles

1 package of young spinach (small leaves)

1 sour green apple finely chopped

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (Roquefort, etc.)


Mix well all the dressing ingredients.

Mix the spinach with the onion and apple.

Pour in the dressing and mix to coat evenly.

Sprinkle the cheese on top and serve.
