Spinach-Strawberry Salad

Summer has arrived here on the East Coast in full force. And that means those sweet ruby gems that are the strawberry are in season and ready to be enjoyed! Strawberry picking is one of my favorite summertime activities. There are only a few weekends in late May and June that you can pick strawberries around here. It’s definitely worth the effort to make time during one of those weekends to go pick your own berries.

    This has been a great hit this winter in “ski country” –easy to make with (pretty) easy ingredients to have on hand (once you buy the bag of sliced almonds, frozen cranberries, and almond extract!)
    First time I made it as written. Delicious but very strong almond flavor. Second time I reduced the 1/2 c sugar on the cranberries to 1/4 cup, sub’d fine cornmeal for 1/2 the flour and reduced the almond extract by half. Pretty tart but almost all my friends liked it better (and if you want it sweeter you can add the whipped cream or ice cream…) and it is a nice counterpoint on a dessert buffet of sweeter brownies and cookies.

    Thanks for the recipe! Hope you are doing well in Ohio.

      So glad you’ve enjoyed this. I loved how simple it was to make! Almond extract definitely has a strong flavor, so I can see cutting it down for sure! Ohio is treating us well so far.
