Spinach and Strawberry Salad

After the baked deliciousness of yesterday, today I’ve got a healthy savory way to use up fresh strawberries. Feel free to customize this recipe based on what you have on hand and what you enjoy. I actually really like to add some crumbled goat cheese to this salad, but didn’t have any on hand the other day when I took the pictures…

As with all salad recipes, the quantities listed below are just what I used the other day when I was measuring the ingredients out. Usually, I just throw a bunch of things together in a bowl and call it a day.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Yield: 2-4

Ingredients:

1 bundle asparagus
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz baby spinach
1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1 oz crumbled goat cheese
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil to avoid a mess. Drizzle 1 Tbsp olive oil over asparagus. Use your hand to stir it up so all the asparagus gets coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 15 minutes, stirring once in the middle.

Allow asparagus to cool to room temperature and slice into ~2" pieces.

Mix the vinegar and 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Add the nuts, strawberries, and asparagus. Toss to coat and add the spinach. Sprinkle cheese on salad just before serving.

    I’m disgusted…….but intrigued. LOL It sounds like it wouldn’t work…but as a fellow PB&J lover, I’m going to try it pretty soon. I wonder how it would all be with chocolate drizzled on top. Too much?? LOL

    This is funny because my hubby often eats egg whites with peanut butter on top – apparently it’s a big body builder thing to get the right ratio of fat and protein – haha, so you’re not alone, I can imagine he’d love the jelly with this too!

    And I really like your top 30 post – very inspiring!

    I can kind of see how this works! I made pb&j stuffed french toast once, and this is kind of like that, minus the bread. Like a low-carb pb&j! I might have to give it a shot 🙂
