Since it’s about zero degrees outside and the ground is covered with snow, I wanted to make a meal that reminds me of warmer weather days and sunshine! And what better way to do that than with an easy spinach berry salad!
This salad is so simple to make, tastes great, and is packed full of iron, folic acid, and calcium- all nutrients essential to new moms (and pregnant moms too!). It’s originally my sister’s recipe and has always been a huge hit at parties, so I figured why not scale it down a bit in portion to make it for just my family today.
To make it, you need the following ingredients (makes 4 servings):
1 large bag pre-washed organic spinach leaves
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1/3 cup feta cheese
¼ cup slivered almonds
Dressing of your choice (I love using a light raspberry vinaigrette with this or a poppy seed dressing pairs really well with this salad too).
Toss together spinach, strawberries, almonds, and feta. Top with your favorite dressing (or leave the dressing on the side and dip each bite to help cut additional calories). And serve! It’s that easy!
