The other day I made this Spinach Strawberry Feta Salad because I needed something light and healthy. I love strawberries and gathered some of the ingredients I had in the refrigerator to make this lovely spring salad idea.
If you love the strawberry and feta combination, you won't want to miss my Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta Recipe so be sure to check it out.
I notice that I tend to eat more salads at the beginning of the week and think that maybe I subconsciously believe that if I start out the week on a healthy note, then I can indulge a little more towards the end of the week.
I have to say that this salad can be made with other berries too, I have made it with blackberries and blueberries. I think I am going to try watermelon sometime.
I like a little crunch in the salad and while many strawberry feta salad recipes contain walnuts, I like to add some chopped candied pecans to this. The slight sweetness of the berries and pecans complement the feta, mushrooms and spinach very nicely. Add a maple balsamic dressing and you have heaven in a bowl!
You can also use a bottle balsamic dressing if you wish, but it is so easy (and healthier) to make your own. I always use the bagged spinach for this recipe because it saves some time.
Main Ingredients for this recipe:
Spinach - I like to use the pre-washed and prepacked spinach to save some time. Make sure it is fresh and check expiration date if you buy the prewashed version.
Strawberries - Look for plump red berries with no spots or fuzz.
Feta- I use the crumbled variety as it is a great addition to many recipes.
