I know the combo sounds weird but I'm on day 2 of this salad, and let me tell you something- it is divine! I never would have thought to pair the two, but for years I've been hearing about this salad, so I decided to mix the two and see how I feel post-consumption. Result? Well, like I said, it's day 2 and I want it again! Will probably make some tomorrow as well. The spinach has this nice peppery taste to it and the strawberries are so sweet. I also made a delicious dressing, that is the perfect mixture of sweetness and acidity. Try it out and let me know much you loved it.
1 package of baby spinach
1 pint of strawberries, hulled and quartered
1/3c sliced almonds, toasted (I used almonds because that's what I had on hand, but feel free to use pecans, walnuts, any nut!)
for the dressing:
2T white wine vinegar
1/2 lemon, juiced
1T vegetable oil
whisk rapidly. You can make this ahead and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
