I didn’t want to leave you high and dry with only a teaser of the salad I made with yesterday’s mango salad dressing, so here you go! 🙂

This strawberry spinach salad with mango dressing is the perfect salad to make this summer. It’s really easy, colorful, healthy, and the flavors hit all the right notes.

My city is finally in full bloom (it has been for the past couple of weeks or so), and I am soo glad! All signs are pointing towards a lovely summer. I am trying to get outside as much as I can, even for a quick walk.

I have strawberries and other summer goodies on the brain. Not that I make recipes unduly complicated on here, but I want to maximize my time outdoors like everyone else. That means I’ve got plenty more easy and fast summer recipes coming ‘atcha!

Like I mentioned in yesterday’s mango salad dressing post, I am not usually one to put fruit in my savory salads.

Strawberries and spinach are a well-loved combo, however, so I wanted to piggyback on that, knowing so many people love it. I have to say that with the not too sweet mango dressing it works. Do you like putting fruit in savory dishes?

    Swooning over this salad in general and especially the mango dressing! Strawberries are just starting to show up at our markets and this is such a fun way to use them!

      Aw thanks, Marissa!!

    I agree that I don’t usually like to mix too much sweetness into my savory, but I love the salt and sweet in my desserts, so why not? I love the peppery and creamy avocado part of this salad and it sounds like you tempered the perfect balance of sweetness in that awesome dressing. Cheers.

    1. Natasha says:

      Thanks Cindy! Agree, in desserts sweet and savory can go so well together!

    This salad just screams summer Natasha. Add a little grilled chicken or shrimp & it would make for my ideal meal. Oh. . .and that mango dressing. . .I’m already dreaming up all the non salad dishes that I can spice up with it. So good you could practically eat it by the spoon full.
