This easy strawberry spinach salad recipe is super quick to put together and brings you back to the basics of clean eating.

One of the things I truly love about clean eating is the simplicity of the ingredients I get to use. I appreciate the beauty in a spinach leaf, the vivacity of a red strawberry and the earthiness of a walnut. There is such beauty in pairing these types of ingredients together. Ingredients that not only nourish our tummies, but our souls as well.

A simple salad is like a well orchestrated symphony of flavors, textures and nutrients. As the staccato increases with the sweetness of a berry on our tongue, the tempo then slows again with the more down to earth spinach or walnut. A dressing added is akin to sweet notes still hanging in the air after the orchestra is exhausted and fulfilled.

Clean Eating Strawberry Spinach Salad served on a white plate and shown up close. You can easily see the spinach, walnut pieces and strawberry slices. The avocado is not shown in the photo.

Add to that the company of a friend or family members and the experience is truly complete. Something far beyond just having a salad for dinner. Something that speaks to us on a very primal level. It’s the complete package. The thing that seems to make us human beings. The connection between people and the earth and what she provides us.

A simple salad can be a very humbling experience if appreciated and respected. Nourishment on all levels is our most basic, primal need. And as such, it’s worth noting it’s beauty.

    What a gorgeous salad!!! Strawberries and spinach are perfect together.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jocelyn – Yes they are!

  2. Christine P says:

    Thank you for starting to post less desserts! There is a place for it, but with Clean Eating, it shouldn’t be often. I’ll stick to little grain/flour/chocolate most of the time because even though something is “clean”, it doesn’t mean it is healthy for you. It’s hard to not fall into that trap.

    This salad, along with your vinaigrette, looks so yummy though, and definitely a daily meal πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  5. Idajean Waterous says:

    Looks good for the church picnic next week, I like to add goat cheese or feta. Yummm.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Idajean – I so wish I liked goat cheese. I can see where it would go well with this, but I just couldn’t bring myself to add it. Me and goat milk/cheese just do not get along. ~Sigh~

  6. A beautiful salad. Love.

      Nicci – Thanks! πŸ™‚
