Strawberry Spinach Salad #vegetarian #salad #summerfood #recipe

A confession: in case you hadn't guessed a lot of my content is scheduled way in advance.  So I don't know when I publish this whether the sun will be shining or it's pouring with rain.  In theory it's June so it should be salad season, but as I write it's cold, grim and miserable, in JUNE.  Here's hoping you're reading on a blazing hot day and you're desperate to know how to make a strawberry spinach salad your family will love.  Summer strawberries, the goodness of spinach and a delicious dressing; this is one of my favourite salads.

200g fresh baby leaf spinach
400g fresh strawberries, tops removed and sliced

237ml extra virgin olive oil
