Spinach Strawberry Basil Salad (Vegan)

May 28, 2014

I’ve had a vision of making this salad all winter long and now that strawberries are finally in season again, the wait was over today! 😉

And Oh. My. Mother Earth… this is good stuff! Some of you might find the idea of adding fruit in a salad a bit strange (my boyfriend did too) but I promise, the savory twist of sweet fruit, mild baby spinach and the tangy balsamic vinaigrette is so worth trying! I also love the basil in it – it adds this little extra flavor that makes the salad even more special.

I’ll be making this a lot this summer and I hope you’re also giving it a try. If you do, let me know how you liked it!

 

The perfect summer salad!

Spinach Strawberry Basil Salad (Vegan)

For 4-5 servings

  • 140 g baby spinach
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 350 g strawberries (diced)
  • 1 peach (diced)
  • 1 handful fresh basil (ruffly chopped)
  • 3 tbsp slivered almonds

Dressing:

  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (I used chili-garlic infused olive oil)
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp maple sirup
  • pinch of salt

First, prepare the vinaigrette. Then put the baby spinach and basil in a big bowl and toss it with the vinaigrette. Toast the slivered almonds in a small pan until they turn golden. Now add diced strawberries, avocado and peach to the salad and sprinkle with almonds. Enjoy!
