Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Before the new year I decided that I would stop eating meat and go on a plant-based diet. We’re well into the second month of the year and I’m still holding on.

It’s actually been easier than I thought it would be because I always preferred fruits and veggies over any type of meat. I guess the thing that held me back for so long was worrying about what foods I would be eating in place of meat.

Things like caloric intake and protein also crossed my mind.

Who knew that stopping eating meat would lead to so many decisions? I definitely didn’t!

Strawberry Spinach Salad – A Seasonal Favorite

I made the decision to start out by sticking with meat free dishes that I usually eat and then incorporate more meatless recipes into my meal plan as I go along. One of my favorite things to eat are salads!

Right now it’s strawberry harvest time here in Florida so they’re pretty easy to find and very affordable.

There are local farms here in the Miami-are that actually allow you to go in their fields and pick your very own strawberries. You pay by the pound and if you get carried away, it can get pretty expensive.

I love making this strawberry spinach salad with strawberry vinaigrette,  whenever I want something easy and leafy!
