  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  2. Toast almond slices, either in a toaster oven for 5 minutes at 350°, flipping and stirring at least once to ensure they toast evenly, OR in a frying pan (no need to grease it) for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan and flipping them frequently.
  3. Toss strawberries, spinach and almonds in a large bowl.
  4. Measure maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and olive oil into a glass measuring cup or dressing container, and mix vigorously.
  5. Pour dressing over salad just before you serve.
  6. For a salty addition, crumble feta cheese over the top! YUM. Enjoy!
