Jamie says: I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days of Christmas (Christmas Eve and Christmas day) with family, festivities, fun, and food (of course).
After a long walk on the beach last week, I was hungry and ready for a really quick lunch. I made Salmon and Kalamata Olive Spread Open-Faced Sandwiches and a nice salad…it’s red and green for the Christmas season, too! It’s also a nice lighter side dish for the holiday season.
I loved it and the recipe was so simple. I ended up making a second bowl… and then the next day I made it with my lunch, too.
Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Onions, and Balsamic
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 slice yellow onion
- 1 cup strawberries
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar (Whole Foods 365 organic)
- Place spinach in a serving bowl.
- Chop onion slice; add to salad. Wash and remove tops from strawberries; slice; add to top of salad.
- Pour balsamic vinegar on top. Enjoy!
Nutrition note: I bet Popeye didn’t know this one…The vitamin C in the strawberries helps you absorb the iron in the spinach.
