Healthy Spinach Salad With Strawberries – Clean Eating
Fresh salads are one of my favorite things about Spring and Summer. All the great produce options make epic salads possible.
This spinach and strawberry salad is loaded with clean, natural ingredients. The combination of salty and sweet is perfectly balanced. Just in time for strawberry season, be sure to stop by your local strawberry patch. Check out this informative article on the Nutritional Benefits of Strawberries.
I use a blend of spinach and mixed salad greens because that is my preference. All spinach is a bit much for my tastes. Use all spinach, all salad greens or a combo…whatever you prefer.
Is Balsamic Dressing Healthy
This balsamic vinaigrette dressing is healthy. Made with just 4 ingredients; this dressing is quick, easy and doesn’t have any weird preservatives in it like store bought dressings.
Can This Salad Be Made Vegan
Yes, just omit the cheese and this salad is vegan friendly. There are also vegan cheese options available at grocery stores now, feel free to try that.
