Avocado and Strawberry Spinach Salad


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.


Salad Ingredients:

  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 3/4 pint strawberries, sliced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • dressing (recipe below)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 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.

      The avocado was a last-minute addition to this too, and it was a wonderful choice
