Strawberry and Spinach Salad—Taste of Summer

Jul, 01, 2015

By Fredrica Syren:

I’m so excited to have strawberry season once again. These little sweet and juicy berries get me going. I swear I could live on strawberries!

A couple of years ago, I ate an amazing salad with strawberries and spinach at Whole Foods. Ever since, I’ve been dreaming of it. For lunch today, I made it with marinated portobello mushrooms. A very light salad, it is sprinkled with some basil oil and vinegar to complement the strawberries.

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, slicedStrawberry feta salad main
  • ½ cup feta cheese or soy feta, cubed
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup roasted walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. basil oil (recipe below)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. raspberry vinegar
  • Place everything in a big bowl. Don’t toss salad until you’re ready to serve.

Basil oil:

  • 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper

Place everything in blender and process just for a few seconds.
