Summertime Strawberry Bacon Spinach Salad
I went through a period of my life where I ate this Spinach Strawberry Bacon Salad salad for a solid month. It was the Summer of 2014, I was obsessed. The strawberries were in season and I couldn’t get enough. This salad is versatile in the fact that it can be served as a side or main dish. I have done both. If you serve it as a main course, it is super easy to throw in some rotisserie chicken right in there. It is low maintenance, hardly any work, and super tasty.
Fresh Spinach, Strawberries, Blueberries, BACON, Feta, Candied Pecans, Avocado MMMM
Have you ever seen the selection of bacon at the meat counter at Whole Foods? Oh-ma-gooosssshhhh. They have a ton of varieties all made there. I picked up some Blackberry Serrano Chili Bacon for this salad and lemme tell ya….we were not at all disappointed. Next I am going to try the peach bourbon bacon, I for sure eyeballed that one but couldn’t bring home all the bacon. HA! I still don’t understand that saying. Maybe because bacon is legit delicious and you want to bring it home to share? Like money? IDK.
Making Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette
I have made this with a poppyseed dressing as well as a balsamic and I have to say, I like the flavor combo of the balsamic with this better. It compliments the sweet strawberries, bacon, red onion and feta perfectly. The poppyseed dressing was kind of MEH so I am not even posting it:)
Seriously though, this is the perfect Summer salad and if you are strawberry psycho like me, serve it every single night. Unless you make my Greek Burger Salad or my Lemony Brussel Sprout & Kale Salad, then make that.
