Ingredient you will need:

Salad:

3oz fresh spinach

1 1/2 cups strawberries

1 avocado

1/4 red onion

1/2 cup chopped almonds

Dressing:

1 cup sunflower seeds (you’ll need to soak these 3 hours prior)

Juice from 1/2 lemon

2 cups water

1 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

Salad Tips:

The best-ever thing about strawberry spinach salad is that it is so nutritious and so easy! All you have to do is chop up your salad ingredients and combine.

To reduce the intensity of your onion, you can soak the slices in cool water for about ten minutes before using.

My tip for the avocado is to cut it lengthwise until you hit the seed and then rotate the blade around until the avocado is cut completely in half. At that point, you can pop it open and scoop out the seed.

Avocado won’t keep for long. Unless I’m sure the entire salad will be eaten, I usually add it directly to my plate. That way I can save the rest of the salad for later without worrying about browning avocado.

How to make Strawberry Spinach Salad Dressing:

Making your own strawberry spinach salad dressing is a healthy way to control the ingredients in your dressing and it is so easy to do on your own. For this one, you just need a small blender. What I like about this sunflower recipe, is that it is made up of mostly sunflower seeds instead of fatty oils.

Sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E, B1, magnesium, protein, and Selenium (which is a trace element that helps protect your cells from oxidative damage).

For this strawberry spinach salad dressing recipe, I take all of the ingredients and put them in a blender. Don’t forget that you’ll have to soak your sunflower seeds to get them to blend smoothly.

When your dressing is smooth, drizzle on top of your salad and top with fresh cracked pepper and a sprinkle of salt.
