Scale

Ingredients

For the strawberry salad dressing (makes 1 1/4 cups total)

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the strawberry summer salad

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 handful thin sliced red onion
  • 5 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 3 cups mixed greens
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, almonds or pistachios
  • 1/4 cup feta or goat cheese crumbles (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Strawberry Salad Dressing

Instructions

  1. Make the strawberry salad dressing: In an immersion blender, small blender or standard blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. (An immersion blender and small blender are the quickest, but you can also use a standard blender: just blend for a few minutes until fully combined.)
  2. Prepare the salad ingredients: Slice off the tops of the strawberries, then slice them long-wise. Thinly slice the red onion (see the video for this method). If necessary, wash the spinach and mixed greens. Chop the pecans.
  3. To serve, place the greens on plates and top with all ingredients, then drizzle with the strawberry vinaigrette salad dressing (about 2 tablespoons per serving). Refrigerate the remaining dressing for up to 1 week.
