Strawberry Spinach Salad

A fresh salad with strawberries, feta cheese and toasted nuts. 

  • 5 ounces (about 5 to 6 cups) raw spinach (it’s usually prewashed so easy to use!)  
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries 
  • ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans or walnuts (optional, but adds healthy plant-based protein) 
  • ¼ crumbled low-fat feta cheese or other salty, crumbly cheese (optional) 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • 2 teaspoon honey 
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper 
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 
  • ½ teaspoon sriracha sauce or hot pepper sauce (optional) 
Before You Cook
  • Take a minute to read through the recipe before you start.
  • Wash all fresh produce.
  • Wash your hands at the beginning and throughout the cooking process.
  • Children should ask for permission before using appliances and sharp knives.
  1. Place spinach, strawberries, nuts, and cheese in large bowl, toss to combine (or, portion out all items on separate salad plates). 
  2. Make the dressing by combining lemon juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, black pepper, salt, and Sriracha or hot pepper sauce in a small jar with a lid, if possible, or in a small bowl with tall sides. Shake the jar briskly to combine, or whisk with a fork to combine. You may also use premade dressing.
  3. Pour dressing into salad bowl and toss gently to coat salad, or pour some dressing on each salad plate. Serve immediately.
