This spinach salad is so light and the fresh berries make a great combination. Try it with my  sesame ginger dressing, recipe below.

Yield: 2 salads

Ingredients:

3 cups fresh spinach leaves

1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)

1/2 cup raw walnuts

1/2 cucumber

2 celery stalks

1 tbsp. sesame seeds

For the dressing:

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. pickled ginger and brine

2 tbsp. sesame oil

pinch of salt and pepper

Preparation:

Wash and pat dry the spinach leaves well. Wash all the berries and pat dry. Trim the strawberries and discard the tops. Slice the strawberries in half or in quarters. Crush the walnuts into smaller pieces. Wash and slice the cucumber and celery.

For the dressing:

In a small bowl combine the olive oil, sesame oil, pickled ginger with the brine, and a little salt and pepper. Mix with a fork and add more oil/ brine to reach desired consistency.

In a large bowl toss the spinach, berries, cucumber, celery, and walnuts together. Drizzle the dressing over the salad as desired and gently toss. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top and enjoy.
