It's that time of year! Farmers markets, backyard gardens, friends sharing their homegrown bounties. What to do with all this freshness? Here is a quick, simple and tasty side salad that only takes minutes to make.
The first thing you will want to do is put a pan (dry, no oil ) on medium to high heat. Place your slivered almonds in the hot pan and shake and stir for a few minutes. Turn off the heat and add the sesame seeds.
Shake the pan and stir around. If you feel that it is on the verge of burning, remove the pan from the heat. Once you see they are toasted, pour this into a bowl to cool off.
While this is cooling down, it's a good time to slice up all your strawberries. You can place your spinach into your serving bowl, as you slice your strawberries, place them on top of the spinach.
Pour the cooled almonds and sesame seeds in and top it off with the Feta cheese. Gently mix this all together.
In a separate bowl whisk the olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
You don't want to pour the dressing over it until you are ready to serve.
That's it! Time to eat!
