Strawberry, Spinach & Asparagus Salad
This is a flavour packed fresh green salad loaded with superfoods like strawberry, spinach and asparagus. It makes the perfect lunch or a great side salad with dinner. We love to serve it with a simple grilled piece of salmon or lemony chicken breast.
2 cups fresh asparagus cut into 1-inch pieces
2 heaping cups fresh spinach
2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced in half
1 large green onion, chopped
1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons Glasses & Grapes Meyer Lemon EVOO
1 tablespoon honey
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional)
Bring a large pot of water mixed with a teaspoon of salt to a boil over medium heat. Set aside a bowl of iced water. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Drain the asparagus and immediately add it to the ice water.
In a large bowl combine asparagus, spinach, strawberries, onion, pea shoots, almonds and goat cheese. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and toss lightly to coat.
