Strawberry Spinach Salad

This salad is so quick and tasty! You can prepare it in less than 15 minutes. It’s packed with vitamin C and lots of love. All ingredients are organic.

one bunch of spinach washed thoroughly

a small carton of fresh strawberries washed and sliced

1/4 to 1/2 of a red onion very thinly sliced (or diced)

a small handful of walnuts (optional)

dressing:

2 spoons of extra virgin olive oil

a spoon of balsamic vinegar

a dash of maple syrup

salt and pepper to taste

Wash the spinach thoroughly and then pat dry in paper towel to remove excess moisture.  Add spinach in a large salad bowl with the red onion. In a small bowl combine vinegar, oil, spices and maple syrup. Stir well until salt is completely dissolved. Add the dressing to the spinach and toss well to coat all the leaves. Sprinkle the sliced strawberries and walnuts on the top of the salad for a nice presentation.

Tip: try adding some fresh blueberries as well or thinly sliced apple for a tasty variation. I even like fresh Parmesan cheese grated on top!

Yum!
