Spinach and strawberries are a perfect combination as weather warms, especially if you’re craving something sweet & savory. You can make satisfying lunch or simple dinner. And if you decide to “go nuts” by adding pecans, they are an excellent source of calcium and other important minerals; you sure will get a bowl full of vitamins.
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
5 cups baby spinach leaves
½ cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or cranberry dressing
½ cup pecans (based on your calorie output, you can reward yourself with candied pecans)
Wash and dry spinach leaves, then place them into a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle a bit of dressing over the leaves. Gently toss spinach leaves with strawberries, gorgonzola cheese and top with pecans. Taste the salad and if needed, drizzle on a little bit more dressing.
