Simple and Refreshing, with a kick.

I know you all have had this delicious salad before and probably love it as I do, but this time I added a little kick to it.

I used fresh squeezed lime juice and lime zest, which took it up a notch for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it, as did everyone else at the potluck I took it to. No really, it was gone in about 5 minutes, and I barely got my own helping of it. So enjoy!

For the salad, in a medium size bowl layer ingredients beginning with spinach, then strawberries, almonds and lime zest; set aside while you make the dressing.

Balsamic Lime Dressing 
juice of 1/2 a small lime
4 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
4 tsp. Olive Oil
2 tsp. Honey

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients; refrigerate until needed for salad.

Dress salad only prior to serving or it may get soggy.

  1. Thanks for sharing…Very easy to make and I must say red goes really well with green. It’s a few weeks before Christmas, anyway? ;)
