Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Minoo served the Pasta with Tomato Paste and Peas with a side dish of salad.  Minoo got some extra spinach from the South Arm Community Garden managed by the seniors. The freshly picked organic spinach was ultra sweet.


This Spinach and Strawberry Salad is sweet and appetizing.


  • 1 (10 to 12-ounce) package of baby spinach, washed and dried.
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 8 strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and finely diced


  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

    This looks fresh & yummy. I really like salads without lettuce so I’m looking forward to making this! 🙂

    Cracked black pepper is a perfect match for strawberries. Try it on this salad!

    Just made and ate it, it was yummy. I didn’t have poppy seeds though. The sugary dressing matched with the sweet fresh fruit made it taste like candy.
