The most delicious and simple (I googled) strawberry spinach salad on the whole entire planet Earth! And healthy. Did you know that a 10-11 oz box of baby spinach that goes into this salad contains 69 grams of fiber, 89 grams of protein and some crazy amount of vitamins A and K?! 89 grams of protein in grass spinach! No wonder cows are so big and strong. Kids, please note that.

  1. I made this today for lunch and enjoyed all of the fresh, complimentary flavors and textures! The balsamic dressing is the best homemade balsamic dressing I have ever been able to make myself. I usually struggle with getting the right proportions or the right flavors, but this recipe is spot on perfect and will be my new go-to dressing for many different salad recipes! I added cubed chicken to this salad since my husband prefers a meat protein in his meals (I baked chicken tenders in the oven with EVOO, fresh garlic, salt, pepper and a little hot chili pepper) and we also added croutons. I will definitely make this again!
