Spinach and Strawberry Salad 

Spinach and Strawberry Salad 

Spring and Summer make me start wanting to eat salads. Surprising, I know, but something about the warm weather makes me actually desire something raw and fresh! One of my favourite salads is spinach and strawberry. Now I accidentally overbought sunflower seeds and I was looking for another way to use them. They are the perfect addition in this dish. I whipped up a simple sweet vinaigrette, and it’s the perfect fresh compliment to any dinner. This recipe makes a large side salad for 2, or a small side salad for 4.
