Also, Walnuts, olive oil, lime, salt, and pepper the things you will need. As per nuts, you use any other nuts of choice. I like using walnuts particularly because it promotes gut health, very rich in antioxidants, and are anti-inflammatory.

Walnuts are equally considered super plant because it is high in omega 3 fatty acid, great for managing weight, and diabetes. Additionally, it supports brain function and aging! Having said all of these, walnuts are an excellent addition to our yummy berry spinach salad.

  3. Always remember to shake well before use, any and each time.
