spinach, strawberry & avocado salad
Make a very simple salad special by adding strawberries and pecans.
Strawberries in Colombia are irresistibly sweet. The markets are full with them year round so expect to see a lot of them in this space.
For this salad I used:
6 large strawberries quartered
10 ounces spinach leaves
1 Cup roasted pecans
1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted, cubed.
Make ahead and mix & toss with enough dressing to coat just before serving.
For the dressing:
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. raw agave nectar
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
Juice of 1 medium lime
Salt & Pepper
Whisk all ingredients in small bowl to blend. Season with salt & pepper.
