Spinach Salad with Strawberries
Spinach Salad and kids? You’re not buying it, are you? But you never know until you try! There’s no question adults will love this salad. And your kids just might, too. My kids actually ate a little of the spinach and loved the fruit in it. The dressing softens the spinach and makes it really delicious. You can always substitute mixed greens, Romaine, or even arugula for the spinach if it’s a tough sell. So give it a go! One bite won’t kill them.

- 3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
- 8 oz baby spinach leaves, washed and thoroughly dried
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 pt strawberries
- 1/2 cup Marcona almonds
- 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
To make the dressing, combine the vinegar, oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Whisk until combined.
In a large salad bowl, combine the spinach leaves, red onion, strawberries, almonds and half of the cheese. Toss with enough dressing to coat the salad. (If you’ve got any dressing left in the bottom of the bowl, it’s too much. I always start with less than I think I’ll need!) Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the salad among 4 plates and top with the remaining cheese.
