Summer Picnic Series Tip #3 (Judy's Summer Spinach Salad)

Assorted lettuce in a basket.

Add spinach to your salad for an antioxidant boost!

Tired of the same old salad? Try this fresh twist by incorporating one of summer’s sweetest treats: strawberries. Not to mention, you’re getting a vitamin-packed side dish by using spinach, another one of nature’s most antioxidant-rich foods.

Ingredients and Instructions:

In a large bowl, toss together:

1 pound baby spinach   

1 quart strawberries, sliced

 

In a separate bowl, whisk together: 

1/3 cup canola oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon paprika

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Sweeten to taste with sucralose (Splenda®)

Pour dressing mixture over the spinach and strawberries and toss to coat.

Sprinkle the following over the top and serve immediately: 

¼ cup walnuts or pine nuts

¼ cup light feta cheese

Makes 8 servings.

Tip: Serve as a refreshing appetizer or try a larger portion topped with grilled chicken as a healthy entrée.
