Spinach Salad with Strawberries Recipe

Updated on July 27, 2012

I'd be the first to admit it - strawberries and spinach are not two ingredients that commonly go together. However, in this unique salad, an amazing dressing and the addition of almonds makes this salad quite better than it sounds on paper. A major plus to this salad is the fact that it is completely vegetarian (unfortunately, not vegan due to the use of mayonnaise and milk, though a different dressing can be used).

This is a great summer salad to serve at outdoor parties because it is both sweet and filling, and quite easy to make - only three steps, and very little mess in the kitchen afterwards!
