Fresh Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

Fresh Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Spring is in the air and fresh fruits and vegetables are coming to market.  I love seeing rich red strawberries in my refrigerator ~ perfect for eating alone or for using in a salad and a salad dressing.  Spinach is a great taste partner to strawberries and a good strawberry spinach salad is a refreshing treat.  This recipe is quick, easy and easily adaptable.  I used only spinach and strawberries for the salad and because of my boys’ different allergies I didn’t add almonds but if you have no allergy problems I urge you to include almonds or walnuts in the final ‘toss’ of this salad.  The dressing is easy also….light, fresh and tasty!


1 bag of spinach {I didn’t pay attention to the ounces/size..just a standard-sized bag}~ I purchased a ‘ready to use’ bag but prefer to wash my greens before using

1 container of strawberries {16 ounces} ~ use 3/4 of the container for the salad saving 1/4 for the vinaigrette

1/4 cup blanched and slivered almonds

feta cheese ~ I have this available to put on individually {some like it…some don’t}

{use more or less of the above according to your preferences}

1.  Rinse, hull and slice strawberries.

2.  Rinse spinach and place in salad spinner to get rid of the excess moisture.

3.  Gently toss together strawberries, spinach and almonds.

Strawberry Vinaigrette

1 cup olive oil

4 ounces fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled and halved

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white sugar

In a blender or food processor mix all ingredients and blend until smooth.

Serve over strawberry spinach salad and enjoy!
