Spinach and Strawberry Salad

 

 

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!
 

Spinach Strawberry Salad

  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 6 cups spinach
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Dressing
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. cane sugar (or 2 tsp. white sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
Tear spinach into bite-size pieces.  Add onion.  Combine dressing ingredients, mix well.  Just before serving add dressing, almonds and strawberries to spinach.  Toss lightly and sprinkle a few almonds and strawberries on top.
