Spinach Salad with Homemade Dressing

spinach salad

I fixed salad with strawberries for the first time last summer. This spring I was helping a niece and she served this salad with a homemade dressing. Of course I had to get the recipe, which came from my sister Alice.

While this dressing does has sugar in it, you will only need a tablespoon or two for a large bowl, so you’re not consuming an excessive amount of sugar. What I like about this salad is that it has plenty of iron, protein, and vitamins and minerals in it.

The spinach helps give you roughage; the hard boiled eggs provide protein, and the strawberries add vitamins to your diet. It’s colorful and tasty as well. The strawberries give it a definite twist – and it’s a good twist!

Put spinach and sliced hard-boiled eggs into a bowl, then add sliced strawberries. Drizzle the dressing on top; remember that as it sits, the dressing will soak down through all the layers of salad. In this case, less is more!
