strawberry spinach salad with macadamia nuts.
I’d like to be lying on the beach in Hawaii. But I’m not. I’m chasing a one year old around the pool, hoping other parents don’t judge me for letting him eat food off the ground to keep him occupied and sitting in one place for 3 minutes.
So instead we’ll bring Hawaii to us and enjoy this tropical salad with macadamia goodness.
Strawberry Spinach Salad with Macadamia Nuts
What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon raspberry or red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon raspberry or strawberry jam
2 tablespoons canola oil
4 cups spinach, torn into pieces
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped*
*I picked up just the amount I needed at the bulk section of Sprouts (saving some dough)
1/2 cup fresh sliced strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
Prepare the dressing by combining vinegar and jam in a blender. Add oil in a thin stream, blending well.
Toss spinach, 1/2 of nuts, 1/2 strawberries and 1/2 of the kiwis with the dressing on a platter. Top with remaining nuts, strawberries, and kiwis. Serve immediately.
TOTAL: $4.90 or $1.22 per serving. Or if you go with walnuts or pecans you can cut down on the cost.
Wondering how on earth I arrived at these costs? Take a look at my shopping guide to show see what I pay for items, per serving, etc.
