Summer Strawberry Salad


image: the design hive

Sacramento summers are hot enough without the oven and stove adding to the heat, so I like to keep my meals simple and fresh, which is where getting creative with salads comes in.  This strawberry salad is one of my favorites for a hot summer day or night and makes a great meal when paired with a baked (in the microwave if your trying to beat the heat) sweet potato.

Here is what you will need:
1 cup spinach
3 strawberries
1 tbsp feta cheese
1 tbsp raspberry vinaigrette

Place the spinach in a bowl.  Wash and dry the strawberries, cut off the tops, and slice lengthwise.  Top the spinach with the strawberries, sprinkle on the cheese, and drizzle the vinaigrette over the top.  Enjoy!
