STRAWBERRY SPINACH SALAD RECIPE

An unusual combination of tastes & textures - straightforward, delicious, and super healthy - Someone brought this salad to a potluck dinner and I had to have the recipe. I have made it many, many times since then and I have been asked for the recipe every time I bring it somewhere. It is also a great way to get kids to eat spinach!




Benefits of strawberry and spinach include;


Spinach: It is extremely nutritious and low in calories. Eating plenty of leafy greens like spinach is key to great health.




Strawberries: They are high in vitamin C, which is great for iron absorption and hair growth. A vitamin C deficiency can lead to split hairs. They provide an impressive amount of vitamin C, with a whopping 149% of the recommended daily value per cup. Strawberries are a perfect immune-boosting food.
