One of my favourite design bloggers is launching her second collection at Target next week. The first one had all kinds of pretty essentials for a spring party, while the second has everything under the sun for a picture-perfect picnic. I am in love with the striped picnic basket and the multicoloured bento boxes in perfect serving sizes for one. And the gold-dipped condiment squeeze bottles? I die!
This strawberry spinach salad would look so pretty served on the coordinating melamine plates. The berries and fresh greens say summer!
I’m not much of a dressing person so I’ve just squeezed a little lemon juice on top. Do you have a dressing to suggest?
Strawberry spinach salad
Serves 4 to 6
4 cups fresh spinach
1.5 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup goat cheese
Sprinkle of lemon juice
Toss the spinach, strawberries and blueberries together.
Pinch off small pillows of goat cheese and sprinkle on top. (The goat cheese will schmear if you stir it in; plopping it on top is more appetizing, I think.)
Sprinkle with lemon juice or your own dressing.
