Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad

My mom is celebrating her birthday this week and we started out her “birthday week” by having a family dinner at my house. My dad cooked most of the dinner but I contributed this strawberry avocado spinach salad.  It is fresh and simple and oh so delicious.  All you need is spinach, strawberries, avocado, pine nuts, goat cheese and a simple vinaigrette. We all loved it, most importantly my mom.  We are looking forward to celebrating even more later this week by going on a cheese tasting tour later in Marin, I love birthday weeks and I love my mom!

Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad

Strawberry Avocado and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad


  • 8 large strawberries, sliced
  • 3 oz goat cheese, in large crumbles
  • 2 avocados, cubed
  • 2-3 T pine nuts
  • 6-8 C spinach
  • 1/3 C white balsamic vinegar
  • 2/3 C olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 T honey
  • salt and pepper


  1. To make the dressing put white balsamic, olive oil, minced garlic, honey in a mason jar (or other container with lid) and shake it up until it is combined well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place the spinach, goat cheese crumbles, avocado and pine nuts in a large bowl.
  3. Pour some of the dressing over the salad, toss together and enjoy! You may have some dressing left over.
  4. As a side note, this salad would taste good with a little basil added if you happen to have any on hand, and also with a little sliced red onion if you're into that.
