Strawberry Spinach Salad

Ontario strawberries are almost in season! When they are, we'll eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's nothing quite like them! Strawberry Spinach (or Field Green) Salad is our favorite way to incorporate the sweet, red berries into an evening meal.

Serves: 4-6 people Ready in: 15 minutes * For THMer's, this recipe falls into the Satisfying category.
Ingredients:

  • 6 oz. fresh spinach or organic field greens
  • 2 cups, sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 small, finely sliced red onion
  • 2/3 cup slivered almonds or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese (chevre, or feta)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp plan-approved strawberry jam (Smuckers has a stevia-sweetened version)
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper.

Directions: Mix first 5 ingredients together and set aside. Add the rest to a jar and seal tightly before shaking to make the dressing. Add dressing to taste and refrigerate the unused portion. Enjoy immediately!
