There’s something about hotter temps that makes me crave light and refreshing salads with fresh veggies and herbs. I whipped up this spinach salad with goat cheese, roasted potatoes, cucumbers, radishes, fresh mint, and walnuts the other day, and it was so delicious that I thought I’d share the recipe with you!

This spring salad was the perfect mix of light, but filling ingredients. Fresh spring veggies, but a little bit of heartiness from the roasted potatoes and goat cheese.

As a dietitian, it’s important to me that salads are never boring and that they don’t leave you wanting for more. Having sources of fiber-rich carbs, healthy fats, and protein all help to make this salad more filling and nourishing!

If you want to keep things simple, try throwing in some sliced hard-boiled eggs, chickpeas, or some leftover baked chicken or salmon.

How Long Does Spinach Salad Keep?

While best enjoyed fresh, leftovers of this salad can be kept for about 1 day in an airtight container in the fridge.

NOTE: If making salad in advance, do not add dressing until serving to avoid soggy spinach.

Spinach Nutrition Facts

Spinach is an awesome source of many vitamins and minerals, such as:

  • vitamin A
  • vitamin C
  • vitamin K
  • folate
  • calcium

This leafy green is also packed with different phytonutrients (plant compounds) that offer antioxidant functions, helping to fight cellular damage.

Potato Nutrition Facts

While sweet potatoes tend to get more love (not sure why this is??), regular old white potatoes are actually chock-full of nutrition, too!

A 100 gram serving (~2/3 of a cup) provides a third of your daily vitamin C needs, and about 15% of your daily vitamin B6 and potassium.

Like spinach, potatoes also have many different phytonutrients concentrated in the skin. If you leave the skin on, potatoes will also be a source of fibre.

See? No need to fear or avoid these white potatoes!

Goat Cheese Nutrition Facts

A one-ounce serving of goat cheese provides:

  • 6 grams of complete protein
  • 8 grams of fat
  • micronutrients like:
    • calcium
    • phosphorous
    • vitamin A
    • riboflavin
    • iron

Some individuals who are lactose intolerant may actually find that they tolerate goat milk products, since they are naturally lower in lactose!

I LOVE adding a sprinkle of goat cheese to my salads for a punch of flavour and extra creaminess. The protein and fat content of goat cheese also help to make a salad extra filling and satisfying.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb mini potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (to drizzle over potatoes before roasting)
  • 4 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 2 radishes
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 handful fresh mint

Salad dressing:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Wash and dry mini potatoes. Cut potatoes into halves, then toss in olive oil and salt. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet, and place in oven for 30 minutes, until fork-tender.
  • While potatoes roast, prepare other salad ingredients. Chop cucumber into small pieces, thinly slice radishes (using a mandoline if you have one). Chop walnuts and crumble goat cheese. Place all ingredients into a large bowl with baby spinach and fresh mint leaves.
  • Make the salad dressing by adding ingredients to a small glass jar and giving a good shake. Set aside.
  • Once potatoes are cooked, remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add potatoes to salad ingredients and toss with salad dressing. Add additional salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Serve immediately!
