Strawberry Spinach Salad
Ingredients Makes: 4 servings Time: 30 minutes
3 cups baby spinach
1 cup packed mint leaves, de-stemmed and leaves separated
1/4 cup fresh parsley, de-stemmed and chopped
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
3 oz goat cheese ~or~ feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette *see recipe below!
Prepare dressing. If you do not have a dressing already, you can visit the link below for a simple recipe on how to make the balsamic vinaigrette.
Prepare and combine salad ingredients. Clean the spinach leaves and dry using a salad spinner or gently shake and towel dry. Clean the parsley, de-stem and roughly chop. De-stem the mint leaves and then gently pull leaves apart. Rinse the mint leaves but note that If mint leaves are left in water or damaged they could turn black and will no longer look desirable to eat, thus be gently and dry the mint reasonably well.
Transfer all the greens together to a large salad bowl and gently toss to mix. Towel dry any access water to also help prevent the dressing from getting watered down. Clean, dry and slice the strawberries and then add to the bowl of salad greens and gently toss to combine.
Serve the tossed salad with crumbled goat cheese or feta on top along with the balsamic vinaigrette or another preferred salad dressing.
