Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad is a healthy spring salad recipe, loaded with flavor and texture! Baby spinach, juicy strawberries, crispy bacon, crumbled blue cheese, and sliced almonds make this dinner salad filling and delicious.

March 21st is California Strawberry Day, so let’s celebrate! Wait. Did you just say that you had no idea that today is California Strawberry Day? Well it is, so scoot your cute self to the grocery store to pick up some deliciously healthy berries so that you can indulge in the goodness!

This healthy and delicious strawberry bacon spinach salad is any time of year! The salad has a tangy light balsamic vinaigrette on top, but it would be equally delicious served with warm bacon dressing! My blogging friend, Stephanie has a copycat recipe for Bennigan’s Hot Bacon Dressing. I remember the first time I had that dressing, I wanted to drink it through a straw!

This spinach salad recipe makes a great brunch salad, or you serve it for dinner with a side of soup. Cream of tomato soup would be my choice. I hope this healthy salad recipe will become a favorite at your house!

Strawberry Spinach Salad Recipe Notes

While the strawberry spinach salad looks somewhat appetizing, the photo was taken with a point and shoot camera a couple of years ago. It was long before I knew anything about food styling and composition, and it was a few years later that I finally owned a DSLR camera. I promise to update this post with improved photos soon!

Other great recipes to celebrate California strawberry day with:

I simply adore the fresh strawberries in my recipe for Homemade Strawberry-Apple Coleslaw. The crunchy apples pair perfectly with the softness of the sweet strawberries. There’s no mayo in this recipe, so it’s super healthy, too.
