Strawberry and Spinach Salad

strawberry-salad-2

We recently had an overload of strawberries in our fridge.  The ones that Alexander didn’t eat we’ve turned into strawberry ice-cream and jam.  I’ve managed to save a few for this strawberry and baby spinach salad.  I added some smoked bacon to the salad and together with a lightly toasted ciabata it became a perfect Saturday lunch.

Ingredients:

1 bag Baby Spinach, pre-washed
1 punnet Strawberries, trimmed and sliced
125ml (½ c)  Almonds, sliced and toasted
 Salad  Dressing:
 30ml (2 tblsp) Sunflower Oil
30ml (2 tblsp) Apple Cider Vinegar
5ml (1 teasp) Sugar
15ml (1 tblsp) Sesame Seeds
15ml (1 tblsp) Soy Sauce
15ml (1 tblsp) Orange Juice
7.5ml (½ tblsp) Poppy Seeds
2.5ml (½ teasp) Paprika

Method:

  1. Whisk together the salad dressing ingredients.  Set aside.
  2. Place the spinach and strawberries in a large bowl.  Top with the dressing and toss to combine.
  3. Top with the almonds just before serving.
