Spinach and Feta Salad with Strawberries

Spinach salads are all about keeping things refreshing and simple. Think about it – when the weather is hot what do you crave? Most people would choose light yet satisfying meals and chilled food is more tempting than piping hot food, especially when the weather is very warm. Not many people like to stand over a hot stove or have the oven on when it is very hot outside either, which is why summer salads are really popular at this time of the year.

There are lots of recipes for summer salads to choose from, most of which feature typical summer ingredients. Think about which vegetables and fruit are in season in the hottest months and those will form the basis of most summer salad recipes. You can usually adapt summer salad recipes, adding different fruits or vegetables. Salads tend to be very versatile and adding more fruits and vegetables will also boost the nutritional value of the dish. There are good salad recipes for adults and kids and if you are in any doubt about what to use, you can serve the dressing, and some of the topping, on the side, so people can help themselves to what they want.

The following recipe is one of the most delicious and refreshing summer salads of all. Combining spinach with strawberries, feta cheese and almonds in layers, this salad is really simple yet the flavor is fantastic. The spinach has a simple flavor, the strawberries offer sweetness, and the feta gives a sharp, slightly bitter flavor and a creamy texture. The almonds add contrast and crunch. The dressing is sour cream-based and also contains sugar, salt, pepper and a little cider vinegar (use raspberry vinegar instead, if you want), to keep it simple. This dressing echoes the flavor of the feta and adds a delicious flavor to the salad as a whole. This dressing would be suitable for various types of summer salads actually, not just this one.

One of the Most Refreshing Summer Salads
Summary: This lovely summery salad is made with spinach, strawberries, feta cheese, and almonds. The tangy dressing complements those flavors absolutely perfectly. Serve this with chicken perhaps.
