This is a great, super-healthy and easy-to-do salad. It's ready in around 15 minutes and  with a lot of options as to mixing and matching. For instance, you can throw in any fruit or berry with this mix, blueberries and raspberries are a good choice, or you can also add other nuts such as cashews and roasted almonds. They will add a little crunch, omega-3 and more protein!


  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans (or almonds)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (cuvee 20 would be suggested)

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste


Step 1:

Combine the spinach, strawberries, Gorgonzola cheese, bacon and pecans in a large bowl.

Step 2:

Stir the balsamic vinegar and honey together in a bowl; slowly stream the olive oil into the mixture while whisking continuously. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the salad just before serving.
