Happy Independence Day!

Berry and Watermelon Spinach Salad
Dressing:
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon The Delicious Dietitian Thai Spice Blend
Whisk the lime juice into the olive oil until emulsified. Add the Thai Spice Blend and whisk until combined. 
Salad:
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup fresh mint leaves, rough chopped plus extra for garnish
2 cups watermelon, deseeded and cut into 3/4″ chunks
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
Toss the spinach and mint together in a large serving bowl. A few minutes before serving, fold in the fruit and gently drizzle with the prepared dressing. Add a little bit of dressing at a time, and stop when you think you have enough–this salad is great with just a hint of dressing.
Garnish with a sprig or two of mint and serve.
