Spinach and Strawberry Chopped Salad

Spinach and Strawberry Chopped Salad

Sometimes lunch is just lunch.

It’s less about the tiny bowls, and the tenderly placed napkin, and the step-by-step chopping of each and every vegetable.

Sometimes it’s just lunch.  I think that’s a relief for all of us… right?

This salad is an extra chopped rendition of most things currently in my refrigerator:  romaine and spinach, snap peas and celery, lovely ripe strawberries, bacon left over from the Waffle BLTs, toasted pecans, and goat cheese crumbles.

Happy Friday, friends!  Let’s salad easy today.

Strawberry Salad with extra cheese and bacon and pink wine, too!  Some weeks require an extra dose of ease and pink-hues.  I’m glad this is that week!

Let’s measure this recipe in handfuls because no self-respecting salad was ever measured with actual measuring cups.

1 large handful well-chopped romaine lettuce

1 large handful well-chopped spinach leaves

1 celery stalk, finely chopped

about 8 snap peas, chopped

about 6 strawberries, finely diced

1 to 2 slices of bacon, finely chopped

1 small handful toasted pecans, chopped

1 small handful goat cheese crumbles

half a lemon

olive oil

salt and pepper

Toss all of the salad ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Top with lemon juice, a good sprinkling of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Toss to combine and serve immediately.

  1. “Sometimes lunch is just lunch.” Heresy! Just kidding :)

    I love simple, easy to throw together recipes like this one. The strawberries sound particularly wonderful, especially now that summer is pretty much in full swing.

    I’m not particularly fond of olive oil from a taste perspective. I know it’s mostly supposed to be good for you. I like a oil/vinegar combination as salad dressing, so I’ve been searching for an olive oil alternative. I recently tried almond oil, but it’s still not just right.

    Would you be so kind as to suggest a different kind of oil? What do you like on salads besides olive oil? Thanks for the great post.
