Fresh Berries and Spinach Salad

  • Author: Raquel Smith
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


A simple salad of fresh berries, toasted walnuts, and spinach. So flavorful all on its own, all you really need is a drizzle of balsamic and maybe a bit of oil for the dressing. Best served with fresh crusty bread to make it a meal.


  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 heaping cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 cups lightly packed spinach
  • balsamic vinegar
  • olive oil (optional)


  1. Place a dry skillet over medium heat and add the walnuts. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes, until the walnuts become fragrant and lightly toasted. Careful! They’ll go from perfectly toasted to burnt in a flash. Remove them from the pan.
  2. Pile the berries, cheese, and toasted walnuts on top of the spinach in a large bowl. Drizzle with a bit of good quality balsamic vinegar and some oil if you like, and serve with a hunk of good crusty bread and butter.
