Day 320 – Strawberry and Spinach Salad

Strawberry and Spinach Salad
Strawberry and Spinach Salad

As I was munching on this delightful and unusual salad I was trying to work out exactly what would work well with it.  If I wasn’t vegetarian – I’d eat this with pork.  It is sweet but not too sweet – it is tangy but not too tangy – it is indeed a well balanced delightful salad.  It is very light –   so great for lunch or as an accompaniment to your main meal.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Ingredients:

The Dressing…

Combine together…

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

1 Tbsp. of fresh chopped dill

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

For the Salad…

4 cups of spinach leaves

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

1/2 cup chopped almonds

Method:

Place the spinach, strawberries and almonds in a large bowl.

Drizzle with 1/3 cup of dressing and toss well.

Serve it up 🙂

Did you steal a strawberry just to see what this tastes like?  I was so curious I could not resist and I was not disappointed…

Giving credit where credit is due…

This little gem was inspired by ‘Becoming Raw’ – Elegant Greens – and yes they are when dressed with strawberries 🙂
