Strawberry Summer Salad

Collegiate Culinaire: Strawberry Summer Salad

While exploring Biggest Loser Host Alison Sweeney’s health blog, I came across a simple, but perfect summer salad.

I love strawberries so much, so naturally I loved this recipe, only tweaking it a tad by blending the ingredients with some strawberry puree. I also added in orange peppers, onions, and blackberries for a little more variety. The only ingredients missing, I think, were walnuts and a crumbly cheese.


  • 2 cups raw spinach leaves (100 micrograms folate)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice (10 micrograms folate)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup whole strawberries, hulled and chopped (36 micrograms folate)

Blend dressing ingredients together and drizzle over greens of your choice!
