Strawberry Spinach Salad

makes 4 servings · prep time: 15 minutes (not including time to cook bacon)

This salad goes into heavy rotation in my meal plan during the summer months, and I love that I can make it with strawberries from my own garden. To make it a full meal, I love to top it with blackened chicken or salmon. The combination of sweet, savory, and spicy is ah-mazing!


  • 4 packed cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 8 strawberries, sliced
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts
  • A few thin slices red onion
  • Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette (here), for serving (optional)


Combine all of the ingredients in a large serving bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette before serving, if using.
