Strawberry Lemonade Salad


Hi. I'm back. It's been....many months. But I'm posting my favorite summer salad because it's so easy and refreshing and simple and EVERYONE LOVES IT. The secret is the dressing.
[If I've posted this already, cut me some slack. I am not getting enough sleep.]

Plus, I want to let everyone know my good friend, Amy L. is joining us. She has awesome recipes so be excited. Welcome, Amy L.!

Strawberry Lemonade Salad

1 bag baby spinach leaves

1-2 cups strawberries sliced

That's all the salad requires but I like to add candied almonds when I feel fancy. Or throw in some grilled chicken or avocado to make it a meal. Endless possibilities.

Dressing:

1/3 c. sugar

1 lemon plus some zest

1 T. oil

2 T. white vinegar

This salad is so good, the pickiest eater in the family will be asking for more spinach. . . .

That looks really good and I actually have all the ingredients in the fridge. I will make it soon.

Welcome to Amy L.!! I am excited to see her recipes.

I am also way tired b/c I have a two week old infant. I have at least thought about posting though. :)

Congratulations on the baby! Our little guy is nine weeks too and I'm finally getting a little more sleep.

At least it's very temporary :)

I made the salad and I added chicken and candied almonds like you suggested. My whole family really liked it. Thanks!
