Strawberry Spinach Salad

  • 1 bunch fresh spinach, washed  and dried
  • ½ pint (180g) strawberries, halved
  • ¼ cup (60ml) almonds, unsalted and sliced

Trim the stems on the spinach down to only about 1 inch (2.5cm) long and toss in a large bowl. Slice the strawberries and add them in. If you want more flavor from the almonds toast them by tossing them into a dry non-stick pan and moving them around until you smell them more easily. Toss on top of the salad and make your strawberry vinaigrette.

Strawberry Vinaigrette

  • 1 cup (235ml) olive oil
  • ½ pint (180g) strawberries, fresh
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon (3g) salt
  • ¼ teaspoon (.5g) black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon (.4g) thyme

In a blender or food processor, blend together all the ingredients until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, mince the strawberries and put them in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and using a whisk or a fork whisk the ingredients together. Pour on top of you spinach and strawberry salad  and toss to coat all the leaves and strawberries!

If you enjoy cheese on your salad, crumble some goat’s milk cheese on top for a nice rich and creamy addition!
