Are you ready for another fully loaded big summer salad? I hope so because they are my favorite kind. And when strawberries are in season this salad is a must!
Full of flavor and texture, this fresh and fruity Strawberry Spinach Salad is crazy delicious and easy to make with just a few tasty ingredients. I love mine topped with slivered almonds and coconut bacon for the ultimate fruit and veggie salad!
In individual serving bowls, add the spinach and arrange the strawberries, avocado, red onion, almonds and coconut bacon. Drizzle the top with poppy seed dressing. Top with fresh cracked pepper and sprinkle of salt.
To reduce the intensity of raw red onion, try ‘deflaming’ them by soaking the slices in cool or warm water for 10 minutes before using.
I like to ‘arrange’ my salads instead of tossing the ingredients together, but f you prefer each bite to be more random than tossing is for you, making the yummy ingredients hidden throughout.
Making for a crowd? When feeding a crowd you’ll most likely want to toss the salad before setting it on the table. If so, cut the onion into 1 1/2 inch thin slices and dice the avocado into 1/2 – 3/4 inch pieces. You may consider having a bowl of the coconut bacon on the side so your guests can optionally top their salad if they like.
