Strawberry & Spinach Salad

I know, I know - I seem to use Spinach in every other dish. My excuse is - it's good for you *and* I prefer it over other green leafy vegetables :)

I saw a recipe on-line which I modified slightly. I used:
- lemon instead of vinegar
- olive oil instead of vegetable oil
- and no sugar (No need for extra sweetness)


1 Pack of Baby Spinach
1 Pack of Strawberries
3 tablespoons of sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Half a Lemon

Strawberry & Spinach Salad

  • Wash the spinach, Wash & Chop the strawberries. 
  • Add to a mixing/salad bowl and toss.
  • Mix the sunflower seeds and olive oil seperately, then add to the the salad bowl. Toss
  • Squeeze the lemon and do a final toss.
  • Done :)
I was expecting it to taste a little odd but I was wrong, maybe the lemon just brought it all together nicely. Love it.
