Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon strawberry jam, no sugar added
  • 1 Teaspoon canola oil
  • 5 Cups fresh spinach
  • 2 Cups halved fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/4 Cup sliced, unsalted, and dry-roasted almonds

Directions

In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the vinegar, strawberry jam, and oil. Cover and shake until all of the ingredients are well combined. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Tear the spinach leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in a large salad bowl and add the strawberries. Shake the dressing, pour over the salad, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds.
 

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
