Life is Beautiful: Our favorite summer salad

Our favorite summer salad


Over the past few years, we've been to many gatherings where they served this spinach & strawberry salad.  It's delicious and easy to make, so it's become one of my favorite salads to make at home.  It tastes very refreshing and sweet, it's almost like dessert!


Spinach strawberry salad


Ingredients:
-1 bag of ready-to-eat spinach
-craisins
-thinly sliced strawberries
-sugar-coated almonds*
-poppy seed dressing


Directions:
1. Pour spinach onto a bowl.  Top it with the rest of the ingredients according to preference, mix, and enjoy!

*to make sugar-coated almonds, melt white sugar on low-medium heat.  When the white sugar becomes liquid, pour slivered almonds onto the pan, and mix.  Quickly remove from heat and separate the almonds from sticking together.

  5. I was looking a new salad recipe to take to a BBQ next week, and I found this one. It looks so yummy, I can't wait to try it out! My only thought is that I might substitute the white sugar and instead try coating the slivered almonds with either honey or agave syrop, which I believe is a healthier choice. I stopped buying white sugar many years ago.
