Spinach Lentil Salad with Date Balsamic Dressing

This is the first valentine I have as a married women and full time vegan! So I wanted to make it extra special and cook a V Day feast at home. I’ve always been that person who thought they don’t need a valentines day to show partners they care, but I have to admit I now see the value in having a special day set out as It’s easy to get wrapped up in the day to day.

My family has never really seen them so they call them tiny cabbages 🙂
