Strawberry Spinach Salad Recipe TIPS

Strawberry, Spinach and Pecan Salad Recipe

Here are a few tips about what to use that will make this salad super amazing.  Due to the fact that I love gardening you may want to try growing your own spinach in the spring!

  • Use a fresh red onion that has been soaked for about 30 minutes after slicing.  Soaking the onion preserves the flavor and takes the lingering aftertaste away.
  • Grow your own… strawberries and spinach are super easy to grow year-round.
  • Toast up your own pecans in the oven air fryer and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Serve the salad fresh and don’t let it sit to long
