This Strawberry & Spinach Salad is a quick and delicious family favorite. My husband actually requests it!

I spent so much of my early adult life eating salads, that for a long time, I couldn't stomach the thought of eating one. But now, I'm back on the salad train. And this spinach & strawberry salad was the catalyst! {Bonus: my husband actually craves it. He asks for it at least a few nights a week.} The recipe is easy to make, requires only a few ingredients, and tastes great.

Yields: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½-2 cups spinach, washed
  • 2-3 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Feta Cheese
  • 8-12 Walnuts, (I cut these in halves or fourths) (For a less healthy option, my husband likes candied walnuts or praline pecans)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Raspberry Vinaigrette or Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

Directions: Combine all ingredients in bowl, drizzle dressing on top, and serve.

Note: I used to make this salad with cherry tomatoes rather than strawberries, but we love the sweetness of the strawberries. Feel free to substitute your favorite fruit or veggie!

Update: Our new favorite fruit to add is blueberries {so maybe I need to change the name from spinach & strawberry to spinach & blueberry}... yum!

@@Yum! This Spinach & Strawberry Salad is going on my meal list #fitfluential@@
