Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Butter Toasted Almonds

Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Butter Toasted Almonds

Strawberry season is pretty much over and there were still a lot of recipes that I wanted to try. There were still a few stalls with strawberries at the market and I picked some up. One of the the recipes that I wanted to try was Spinach & Strawberry Salad with Buttered Almonds from Seasonal Ontario Food. I used the recipe pretty much as is, though I added some chopped mint and reduced the amount of oil. It was really good. A perfect use of some of the last of the strawberries of the season.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons lime juice & zest
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 teaspoon soy
1 teaspoon butter
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 serving baby spinach (washed)
1/2 cup strawberries (cleaned, hulled and sliced)
* ground black pepper (to taste)
1 tablespoon mint (chopped)

Directions:
1. Mix the honey, lime juice, almond oil, and soy.
2. Melt the butter in a pan.
3. Add the almonds and toast until golden brown.
4. Place the spinach into a dish mixed with the mint and top with the strawberries, dressing, and almonds.
5. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
