Spinach salad with strawberries is bursting with flavor and is super easy to make with just 5 ingredients! Perfect for a quick lunch, or to take to a picnic or a party!

Six Simple Ingredients!

Spinach – Use fresh spinach for this recipe, but romaine, butter lettuce, or a pre-packaged mix of greens will work.

A Great Pairing!

For more variety, mix your greens. Arugula pairs great with spinach!

Strawberries – Choose bright red, firm berries free from soft spots or cuts.

Cheese – Bright, tangy cheeses like feta, goat cheese, bleu cheese, and parmesan are a perfect pair for sweet strawberries and vinaigrette.

Dressing – Customize strawberry spinach salad with any store bought vinaigrette, a homemade lemon vinaigrette, or a quick drizzle of white balsamic vinegar, which is slightly sweeter and has a little less tang.

Variations – Pop in some blueberries, blackberries, or any chopped dried fruit. Toasted pecans or walnuts, chia seeds, and hemp hearts are a healthy addition, and a few slices of creamy avocados or sundried tomatoes are other delicious additions. Sub in sliced green onions for red onions, if desired. Add crumbled bacon, chicken, or shrimp, and make this an entrée recipe!
