A taste of summer any time of the year. This Colourful and fresh salad goes great with any meal. A superb way to start a dinner party but easy enough to serve any day of the week. The lemon in the dressing gives a nice zip making it not too sweet.
I have fresh spinach and strawberries from my garden right now and it is fun to be creative with them. I love garden spinach. The flavour stays mild even through hot weather, unlike lettuce which I find can turn quite bitter when summer heats up.
I try to plant spinach throughout the summer so I never run out!
