  • 1/4 cup finely chopped Red Onion
  • 2 thin slices of red onion
  • Jalapeno (according to taste)
  • 1 tbsp Miyoko Vegan Parmesan Cheese (or any non-nut cheese of choice)
  • 1 – 2 tbsp Vegan Pesto
  • Salt + pepper (to taste)
  • 1 cup of Organic Spinach
  • 1 cup of Organic Arugula

  2. In a separate bowl, add spinach and arugula, thinly sliced red onion, 1/2 lemon juice and dressing of your choice. Toss well.
