Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad -

In these sweltering humid summer days here in the Northeast, I tend to enjoy any meal that allows me to not turn on my oven. Dinners are usually prepared on the grill and lunches are usually something light and easy. This Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad is just the thing to fit the bill. It’s a hearty flavorful lunch packed with all sorts of goodies and requires no actual cooking. Definitely a plus!

Tender spinach is topped with ripe strawberries and avocados. A sprinkle of hearty walnuts add a little crunch to this hearty salad. But my favorite thing is diced Kerrygold Aged Cheddar Cheese. Oh my goodness, this salad is sweet, savory, nutty and anything but boring! It’s all finished off with homemade lemon poppyseed dressing that has just hint of orange to it. This Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad is they type of salad that refuses to be a side dish. Oh no, this salad is a shining star and meant to be the main event.
