Fruity Spinach Salad


Fruit and spinach make a delicious combination, especially when drizzled with a lovely vinaigrette dressing, and adding walnuts gives your salad a fun crunch.

Thanks to our friends at The Institute of Functional Medicine for sharing this easy-to-make recipe!


Ingredients: (Servings: 4, Calories: 165)

  • 1 pint fresh organic strawberries (or 2 cups sliced)
  • 8 oz. fresh spinach, washed, dried, torn to pieces


  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • ½ tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts



  1. Cut berries in half and arrange over spinach in a serving bowl.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth. Just before serving, pour over salad and toss.
  3. Garnish with nuts.

Note(s): For a variation, try raspberries in place of strawberries, and sliced almonds in place of walnuts.
