Refreshing Spinach Salad

Today in Maine it is over 90 degrees!!! When it's that hot who wants to eat cooked food?
Summer is the easiest time to eat a raw vegan diet. There is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables and everything just seems to have more flavor.

Cool smoothies and salads are the way to go on a day like this. Here is an easy salad that takes just minutes to prepare.

Refreshing Spinach Salad

1 pound raw spinach, broken into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup of leeks or chives, chopped
sliced radishes (about 4)
10 raw mushrooms, sliced thin (my favorite are baby portabellas)
1 carrot, shredded

Toss with your favorite raw dressing and enjoy.
