Strawberry Spinach Salad Ingredients
With super simple salads, the key is dfresh high wuality ingredients. The flavors of the vegetables and fruits really make the salad so the fresher the better. Sweet ripe strawberries will really shine in this salad!
If you avoid nuts, you can omit or replace the walnuts. The crunch really adds to the salad so i'd recommend replacing with toasted sunflower seeds.
Making the Salad
First mix the dressing
Put the tahini in the bowl and juice the lime into the bowl. Grind some of the lime rind into the bowl and one to two grinds of himalayan sea salt. Whisk with a fork and add a little bit of water to thin it out.
New to Tahini?
If you like this dressing, it is similar to the one used in these kale superfood bowls!
Next toss in the spinach and some strawberries
Evenly coat the spinach in your newly mixed tahini lime dressing.
Slice the berries and mix half into the spinach, reserving half for the top
We eat with our eyes first, so some of the sliced strawberries will go on top with the chevre and walnuts. However, there are too many strawberries to put all of them on top.
For that reason, mix half of the strawberry slices into the spinach and then reserve the rest of the slices to spread on top of the salad.
Then top the salad!
Top the salad with remaining strawberry slices, crumbled walnuts and chunks of chevre.
Pairing the Strawberry Spinach Salad
