Healthy & Bright Strawberry Salad

I’m the kind of person that loves every season of the year, but I also believe that some seasons overstay their welcome. I’m always giddy with anticipation when a new season is around the corner... the old is gone and the new is here! However, I tend to get sick of each season after a few months and then start counting down the days until the weather changes again. For me, a perfect world would consist of 4 equal seasons that are long enough to enjoy but short enough so that you won’t get sick of them.

Anyways…

With each new season comes new foods that we love. Summertime is great for watermelon, fall is the time of year for indulging in pumpkin spice, we reach for anything peppermint in the winter, and when it’s springtime we start picking berries of all types! And now that it’s finally starting to feel like spring outside, I’m buying all the strawberries I can find.

One of my favorite springtime lunches is a strawberry spinach salad. This salad is perfect because it’s refreshing and light but still has enough substance to fill you up. The flavors from the strawberries and honey Dijon dressing are naturally sweet but the feta cheese and red onions give it just the right amount of kick. As for the avocado... well we all know that avocados make any salad taste better!

Of course you can add and subtract the amount of each ingredient in this decadent salad, I personally like adding in some extra red onions. I’ve also topped it off with a raspberry vinaigrette before if i’m in an extra-fruity mood.

Are you hungry yet? Let’s get to work!

A colorful salad that is sure to brighten your day!

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time15 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time20 mins

Ingredients
 3 cups 50/50 Spinach and Spring Mix
 ¼ cup Sliced Red Onion
 ¼ cup Feta Cheese, Crumbled
 ¼ Avocado, Sliced
 5 Medium Strawberries, Sliced or Diced
 2 tbsp Walden Farms Honey Dijon Dressing (or Skinny Girl Honey Dijon Dressing)

1

Well, there’s not much to this salad! It’s so simple and easy, just another reason to love it! All you have to do is put the salad base of spring mix and spinach in a large bowl.

2

Add in your sliced red onion, crumbled feta, avocado, and cut strawberries.

3

If you are using the Walden Farms Honey Dijon Dressing, you can top off the salad with as much of it as you’d like because it’s calorie free. Yes you heard that right… CALORIE FREE! (Now, simple dressings that contain olive oil may be high in fat and calories, but they are still good for you in moderation… so don’t be afraid of them! However, you should try and stay away from using dressings that are made with a lot of cream or mayonnaise because they can pack on empty calories and several grams of saturated fat in just a few tablespoons.)

4

Toss your salad together and add in more spring mix if it seems to heavy. All that’s left to do now is dig in!
My favorite bites are the ones with strawberries, red onion, and avocado... now that’s a flavor party right there!

    • "I’ve found myself stuck so many times in my life. Recently I’ve been stuck in a situation where I’ve tried literally everything to solve my problems and the circumstances still remained the same. But, low and behold, God has been using this season of despair to take the attention off of what’s been happening in my life and instead putting the focus on the condition of my heart." #FetchFitLife #NewPost #FaithBlog #SpiritualBlog #WordsOfEncouragement #newpost #blogger #wilmingtonnc #faith #christian #devotional #northcarolina
