This beautiful and delicious salad is incredibly easy and fast to make and will definitely be a crowd pleaser at your next gathering.
Strawberries are one of the most favorite fruits, did you know that? Is it because they are sweet, juicy, bursting with flavor or is it because they are the first fruits of summer? Either way, strawberries are completely delicious and good looking, which makes them perfect in a green salad like our Spinach Strawberry Salad with Macadamia Nuts. Spinach is greatly known for its superfood powder, loaded with nutrients and vitamins that are good for your bones, hair and skin and macadamia nuts are just luxuriously rich and creamy nuts. This is a very quick and simple salad that turns out stunning thanks to the bright red Strawberries, vibrant green spinach and white macadamia nuts. The dressing couldn’t be simpler: sherry vinegar, pomegranate molasses and olive oil. Pomegranate molasses are mostly used in middle eastern cuisine (I do own a few middle eastern cookbooks) and fell in love with their sweet taste. I know they are not a common ingredient to hold in your pantry so you can easily swap it with maple syrup in this recipe. So simple, fast and easy, this salad is perfect for your weekly meal or it is great to addition to a summer party!
Make the dressing: place all the dressing ingredients in a jar, and shake it with the lid on until dressing is combined. Alternatively, whisk everything in a small bowl.
On a cutting board coarsely chop the macadamia nuts.
Assemble the salad: in a big salad bowl toss spinach with the dressing. Sprinkle the strawberries and the nuts on top. Serve immediately.
