What an amazing time of year: both the farmer's markets and our home gardens are popping with amazing, fresh and flavorful veggies!
Today’s fresh & easy Strawberry Spinach Salad recipe, as perfected by chef Staci Bronson in our very own BITW test kitchen, combines many of those in-season options into a delicious salad, perfect for lunch or dinner on a hot summer day.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
Options, to taste:
BBQ, slow cook, or pan grill your protein of choice. (I love bacon and chick thighs)
While cooking, toss spinach into a bowl and dice up strawberries, cukes and tomatoes.
Top with almonds and cheese.
Allow the protein to cool, or throw it on warm.
Finish with dressing or balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Up the carb ante with some toasted baguette dipped in balsamic.
