This is a nice little side salad that I made up after realizing that I had strawberries and avocado on the counter, and some spinach left over from my last batch of spinach pasta. Using what I had in the pantry, I whipped up the salad and a dressing. The sweet agave was a nice complement to the bite from the vinegar, and the chia seeds added a great texture to the whole salad. The addition of the avocado filled it out in a way that could have made it into a main dish, not just a side.
- 3 cups fresh baby spinach
- 3/4 pint strawberries, sliced
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
- dressing (recipe below)
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1.5 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. agave syrup
- ½ Tbsp. chia seeds
- pinch of salt and pepper
Really? You need directions for this?
Combine dressing ingredients, and whisk them together.
Toss the salad ingredients with the dressing in a large bowl, and serve.
Eat it with a fork.
