Ingredients

  • Baby Spinach – 1.5 cups
  • Strawberries – 5
  • Cucumber - 1
  • Shaved Almonds - 2 tbsps
  • Cottage Cheese – 3 tbsps

For the dressing

  • Honey – 1 tbsp
  • Olive Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Poppy Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Pepper Powder – ½ tsp
  • White Balsamic Vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Lemon Juice - 2 tsps

Instructions

  • Clean the spinach.
  • Peel and dice the cucumber.
  • Hull the straw better and chop them into halves.
  • In a salad bowl, combine the spinach, almonds, strawberries and the cucumber and mix well.
  • Drizzle the cottage cheese on top.
  • For this dressing, I used my salad dressing mixer. Combined everything under dressing and mixed well. If you don’t have the dressing mixer whisk all the ingredients together.
  • Just before serving add the dressing and serve chilled.

Notes

Cheese is optional. You can replace cottage cheese with feta.
White wine vinegar, red wine vinegar or regular balsamic can used instead of white balsamic.
As I used baby spinach, I didn’t chop the spinach. If you want smaller bites, chop the spinach.
