The spinach and strawberry salad is the perfect salad for a summer night. Packed with fresh vegetables and sweet strawberries, this salad is finished with sliced ​​almonds for just the right amount of crisp.

We enjoyed our spinach and strawberry salad for dinner along with a simple pasta. It's sweet and sour and even my skeptical vegetable kids surprised me by liking it so much.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad Recipe

I have never subscribed to the belief that a recipe must be complicated and full of ingredients to be impressive or satisfying. This salad recipe is the perfect example.

Summer strawberries shine full of flavor on their own. The contrast between the leafy spinach and the juicy strawberries is almost perfect.

I added thin slices of sweet red onion for a little bite and a handful of almonds for texture, crispness and flavor.

One of my boys informed us that it was only right if you ate a bite with berries, spinach and onion at once. He had never enjoyed an onion in his life before. I was impressed!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad Dressing

The salad dressing in this spinach and strawberry salad recipe is designed to enhance the flavors of the other ingredients and I think it does it very well.

Light olive oil is beaten with juicy lemon, zest and just a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper to make the dressing.. Gently mixing strawberries, spinach, onion, and almonds in this light dressing is all you need to make a tasty light lunch or garnish.

I recommend that you try the salad with the dressing as written first, but this basic salad recipe would also be good with a light vinaigrette dressing. Try it with honey balsamic vinaigrette or white balsamic vinaigrette and let me know how it turns out!
