Strawberry Spinach Salad
I love spinach! I really don’t like iceburg lettuce, so I make all of my salads with spinach. The hubby bought me a giant box of real North Carolina strawberries. So I always am making this salad. My two favorite things, spinach and strawberries! You can’t go wrong with this salad combination. It is bursting with flavor and loads of texture and delicious ingredients.
It is time to have a mom date with your friends and enjoy this salad that is filling with all things healthy and rich in flavor. Impress your friends with this beautiful salad. There will only be empty bowls at your table. I love how easy this salad is to make yet and doesn’t take long at all. I love all the vibrant colors and how it looks when all combined.
This is a go-to salad for me and so simple to make! I like to throw in chopped up, cooked chicken into my salad to add that extra protein.
