Spinach

The combination of sweet strawberries, salty feta cheese, and the tart dressing makes an incredible salad. I like to serve salads on platters to show off the beautiful colors. Blueberries naturally contain pectin, so the dressing will become thick if it sits for a while. If you need to, whisk in a little more olive oil to thin it out.

Ingredients

  • One 6-ounce package baby spinach
  • 1 Cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 Cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 Cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 Cup white balsamic vinegar
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2/3 Cups olive oil

Directions

Arrange the spinach on a serving platter. Top with the strawberries and feta cheese.

For the dressing, place the blueberries, vinegar, lime zest and juice, and honey in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until the blueberries are puréed, about 1 minute. With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream.

Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve. 

Spinach Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Spinach Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
