The beautiful Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad

I love tossing fresh fruits into salads and how i adore the strawberry season…i use them everywhere jams, preserves and salad dressings. The strawberry spinach salad is one of my favourites, because its so simple to make. The sweetness of strawberries combine with the and tangy dressing makes it my family’s comfort salad.  The toasted nuts add every bit of crunch u need…
This salad is fifth in my #husbandkadabba series…

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 5 to 6 strawberries sliced
  • 4 tablespoon crumbled cottage cheese seasoned with black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chinese red cabbage
  • 1/4th of an apple thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • A handful of toasted nuts (walnuts and pistachio)

For the dressing: Strawberry Lime Vinaigrette

To make the dressing for this salad, whisk together all the dressing ingredients as follows and adjust salt and pepper to your taste:

  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 fresh strawberries
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • A dash of mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

To transfer all the prepped ingredients into the jar, first pour in the strawberry lime vinaigrette dressing and let it settle at the bottom of the jar. Now layer with sliced strawberries, crumbled cottage cheese, chinese cabbage, sliced apple and then the baby spinach.

Finish off the jar with toasted nuts of your choice, I have used walnuts and pistachio…

Have a great weekend… i will be back with more dabba ideas next week..
