This baby spinach and strawberry hearts salad is perfect for a light lunch or dinner. The fresh blackberries and pecan pieces give it a nice sweet crunch.
When you layer the baby spinach, it creates the perfect bed for the strawberry hearts, blackberries and pecans pieces to rest. It’s presentation on the table is impressive, stunning and its taste is distinctive and delectable.
There is no question this is a simple salad that is super easy to make, but it is also super healthy and packs a powerful nutritional punch.
If you are health conscious and watching what you eat, you will take comfort knowing this salad is loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals that are good for you and won’t spoil your diet.
Another great thing about this salad is you can add kale or just about any leafy greens you want to it or substitute the spinach for another leafy green to create a different salad with a different taste and a different texture.
I have tried the baby spinach and strawberry hearts salad with different leafy greens, but I always come back to the baby spinach. That’s usually what I want when I crave a fruit salad.
Drizzle a strawberry vinaigrette or a raspberry vinaigrette over your baby spinach strawberry hearts salad with blackberries and pecan pieces and it will taste and look perfect. Serve your fantastic heart salad with our delicious Cornish Hen.
