This strawberry spinach salad is a delicious way to eat your greens. The sweet, creamy dressing is the perfect topping for this healthy salad recipe.
This simple strawberry spinach salad is a delicious way to eat your greens. We get a lot of spinach from our farm share, and it’s in season alongside strawberries. I try to wash my spinach right when I get home from the farm, then I store it to maximize its shelf life.
My kids don’t always go for the healthy food I put on the table, but this salad is a hit with them. The strawberries and the sweet, creamy dressing distract them from the fact that they’re eating a mouthful of spinach. You can improvise with different add-ins like almonds, avocado, and scallions. This basic version is delicious on its own, though.
