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.
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
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 🙂
