Spinach and Strawberry Salad
I have had this salad before and it is SO good.
I saw the recipe here and just had to try it.
I chose dressing #2 because it had less sugar, and I substituted a few things. Here is what I did:
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive or flax seed oil
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup xylitol
2 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp dry onion
1 clove finely pressed garlic
Mix together and chill in the refrigerator before mixing into salad.
For the salad:
Mix baby spinach, sliced strawberries and slivered almonds. Add a little bit of the dressing and toss before serving.
When my kids found out we were having a spinach salad they were horrified. One was even bawling! But, in the end they all ate their spinach and thought it was pretty good. :)
This salad is also good with Maple Sugar Walnuts and thinly sliced apples and/or blueberries.
