Maple Tempeh Spinach Salad with Orange Dressing

I found this recipe at and thought it looked amazing. Well, it was amazing! One of the best salads I have had. The maple flavored bacon and orange dressing give this salad a lot of flavor.


2 c. spinach

1/4 c. cooked quinoa

1/3 c. cooked chickpeas

2 strips cooked tempeh (Smokey Bacon flavor is amazing!)

1/4 c. shredded carrot

1 tbsp. dried cranberries

Dressing Ingredients:

1/3 c. orange juice

1 1/4 tsp. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. Bragg’s

1 tsp. agave syrup or Stevia


Arrange salad ingredients into a large bowl. Mix dressing ingredients together. I use a small Tupperware. I add all of the ingredients and shake it.  Top salad with dressing. Enjoy!!!
