Strawberry Spinach Salad | Recipe Treasure

Salads are undoubtedly my go-to-meals during the summer because I’m always out and about whether its with family, friends or school-related activities. They’re super easy to prepare, they’re good for your body and easy on the wallet too!

Recently my friend and I were talking about her immense dislike for spinach. She told me how she doesn’t like the plastic-like taste of spinach and the bitter aftertaste it leaves in her mouth. Coincidentally, I was eating my strawberry spinach salad so I forced her to eat a bite of it after catching her ogling at it with disgust. I was expecting her to spit it out immediately but surprisingly she quietly chewed and once she was done, she gave me a bright smile and snatched my salad bowl from me only to devour it all.
