Strawberry Spinach Salad with Lime-Pomegranate Dressing

IMG_8093

This is one of my go-to summer salads that is light and fruity but still has depth with the pine nuts and feta and a little spanish kick from the cumin. This is my favorite salad to serve at BBQ’s and family dinners, everyone seems to LOVE it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 2 cups Butter lettuce
  • 8 Strawberries, sliced
  • Avocado, cubed
  • Crumbled feta
  • 1/2 cup Pine Nuts

Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 tbsp Pomegranate juice
  • 3 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 stevia packet
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Olive Oil (about 2 tbsp)

In a separate bowl, mix lime juice, pomegranate juice, apple cider vinegar, stevia, cumin, salt, maple syup and drizzle while whisking in olive oil until it’s a dressing-like consistency. Toast pine nuts over low heat in small skillet, stirring constantly so it doesn’t burn. In a big bowl, add spinach, sliced strawberries, avocado, pine nuts. Pour dressing over salad and top with crumbled feta to your liking.
