I felt like we needed a new side salad. Since strawberries are just beginning to be readily available again, it seemed like the perfect recipe to try. My husband and young adult children really enjoyed it. I agree with previous reviews - cut back on the oil (I used 1/2 cup), a little extra basil and mint - just to add more flavor - added a little goat cheese - and it was very delicious! Glad to have read reviews before making. I'll definitely make again and I could certainly serve to company.
You really can't go wrong with strawberries and spinach, especially when they are both in season, and this very simple recipe adds a great dressing to the two. Nice fresh flavor, highly recommended to try!
I made as per the recipe except for cutting the oil to about 3/4 cup, based on previous reviews. I recommend letting the dressing sit a few hours so the herbs infuse. This was a big hit and so pretty!
I figured I would try this for dinner tonight since I had all the ingredients...I am always looking for ways to use fresh herbs from my garden. I used less oil based on other reviewers and added grilled chicken to make it a main dish. I also threw in some avocado that I found in the refrige. It was delicious and I would make it again and serve it to guests. Looked beautiful too.
This was a big hit today at a dinner. I didn't have fresh basil or chives but used Herbes de Provence seasoning, next time I will look harder for the fresh herbs. I did add lemon to the vinaigrette because it lacked something.
Fabulous! Made the whole thing in under 5 minutes for a late Valentine's supper. Served it in a trifle bowl and it was beautiful. Company worthy. Do NOT skip using the dressing..it's a must and brings the whole thing together!
Added some burrata - the creaminess of the cheese balanced really nicely with the sweetness of the strawberries and the tanginess of the dressing and provided a good contrast to the crunchiness of the almonds. Based on other reviews, I cut the amount of oil in half and used about 8 Tbsp of dressing for 5 ounces of spinach. Husband loved it!
This is my go to recipe for when I'm entertaining and without fail, someone asks me for the recipe - that is a 5-star in my opinion!
This is my go-to spinach strawberry salad, we usually add grilled chicken. I use balsamic instead. The basil is awesome in this, don't leave it out. I would however cut the oil a little.
I added goat cheese to this and it was amazing!
Yum. I would definitely serve this for guests. The dressing was maybe a tad heavy on oil - I may use 3/4 cup vs. 1 cup next time. I wish I could get nutritional info for the left over salad dressing.
