Strawberry Spinach Salad is a refreshing and vibrant dish that combines the sweetness of strawberries with the earthy tones of spinach. Topped with a tangy vinaigrette and crunchy nuts, it’s perfect for a light lunch or as a side salad.


  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds or chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta or goat cheese
