Roasted Broccoli Spinach Salad for #SundaySupper {#Vegan} #EatYourGreens

It is March - yes; spring is just around the corner well actually here in Portland, we already see and smell it.  Daffodils are blooming, the trees just started to bloom as well, and tulips are just around the corner.  Well I know so is probably also the next storm but isn't it all part of spring?  This weeks #SundaySupper theme is Eat Your Greens and DB of Crazy Foodie Stunts is our host.

We like greens in our house. Kale, Chard, Mache, Spinach….we have not met a green we did not like; and I am so glad that the entire family loves dark leafy greens just as much.  Salad is something that we have on the table with every dinner, and both girls always enjoy it.  I try to mix it up a bit - red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, spinach, kale {lacinato is our favorite}, and today I bring Roasted Broccoli Spinach Salad to our virtual #SundaySupper dinner table.  It is greens on green, delicious, crunchy, and oh so good.
