HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!  Another gorgeous weekend is here! We're in for a beautiful weekend of sunny, warm (but not painfully hot like it has been, thank goodness) weather and we're definitely planning on spending some more time poolside!!  We'll probably be BBQing (duh, always) and what better to add to the menu than a super light and yummy summer salad! I have the perfect one, that I LOVE to make (it's not SUPER healthy but I made it a lot when I was trying to lose weight and loved it!).  It's light, fresh, and super flavourful! 

I basically am obsessed with the palette of this salad- we have sweet, salty, crunchy... so many textures and flavours!   My dad would SO not approve of this post - he's a firm believer that fruit has absolutely NO PLACE being in salad (LOLOLOL) so sorry Dad!!! Plus, the prep on this salad is so minimal and it's SUPER easy to throw together.  I've even got my toddler to eat it so this has remained an tried and true staple in our household.  So without further ado- see below for the yummy ingredients list!! 





Strawberries, sliced 

Baby Spinach

Pecans, halved (just a few!!!)

Feta Cheese, crumbled 

Goat Cheese 

Red onion, diced (optional)

Renee's Gourmet Honey Dijon Vinaigrette 


Seriously, does it get any easier than that??  There are only six ingredients!! All I do is wash the amount of spinach I want, throw your sliced strawberries, pecans, crumbled feta, and top with some goat cheese (I've also seen red onion in this salad, I don't personally do it but it can add a lot of flavour!) and then add your dressing!  I use a bit of Renee's Gourmet Honey Dijon Vinaigrette (not good for you so go easy LOL - but hey if I'm eating salad I'm not freaking out about the dressing okay?) and voila!!! SO YUMMY and so easy!
