Apple and Spinach Salad with Sweet Seed Butter Dressing
Why I Love This Recipe
Salads are a perfect summer food. They are light and delicious on those hot days and fuel the body with nutrients that will keep you going during the longer daylight hours. We love to dress our salads for success and find creative ways to work our nut butters into a dazzling dressing.

3 T maple syrup
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Feel free to swap out a different lettuce or toss with other fruits or vegetables. Once the dressing is placed in the refrigerator it will thicken and we love to use it as a dip for veggies!
