Strawberry Spinach Salad


This is my absolute, hands-down, all-time favorite salad. It's adaptable to whatever you have handy, it's simple and it's fast. Plus, strawberries. [yum!]


  • 1/4 cup white sugar [can sub honey, maple syrup, stevia]
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


    1. Whisk ingredients together. Cover and chill. [Note: I keep the left over dressing in my fridge for when I go on salad binges]
    2. In a bowl, combine 6 cups thoroughly cleaned baby organic spinach and 3 tablespoons chopped onion [personally, I like a lot of sweet onion in my salad but adjust to your taste]. Add 1/2 cup cleaned, hulled, sliced fresh strawberries. Mix. Pour cooled dressing over salad [to taste]. Eat and come back for more.

    Optional additions: sesame seeds, poppy seeds, chia seeds, toasted sliced almonds, pecans, different lettuce types... you get the idea.
