Spinach Almond and Berries Salad

My friend, Wendy, of Weekend Gourmet, has started a new blogging group called The Salad Bar. Each month we will blog about a salad with a different theme. June brings us berries, so I remembered the cover photo of a cookbook I bought over a decade ago in Colorado. It featured a bed of greens with a sprinkling of colorful berries. A sweet vinaigrette pairs delightfully with the fruit laden salad. That was my inspiration for this Spinach, Almond and Berries Salad.

Summer Berry and Greens Salad

Growing up, my mom would try to shake up the ordinary tossed salad. We expected tomatoes, cucumbers, and other raw ingredients. We weren’t thrilled when she tossed in some leftover steamed green beans and were appalled if fruit was involved. But the first strawberry spinach salad recipe changed our minds. Since then, I’ve been a huge fan of berries in salads.

To make this lovely version, spinach and bib lettuce were tossed with perfectly ripe strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Toasted slivered almonds and green onions were added to the mix before tossing with a sweetened sherry vinaigrette. Ideal for a picnic, barbecue or just a weeknight dinner at home. Make sure to scroll down to see all the creative salads featuring the luscious spring crop of berries.
