Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Green Asparagus
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Danish title: Spinatsalat med jordbær og grønne asparges
125 g (5 oz) fresh spinach leaves
1 large avocado
400 g (14 oz) strawberries
500 g (18 oz) green asparagus
50 (2 oz) almonds, chopped
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
Step 1: Rinse the spinach leaves and put them on a salad plate or in a salad bowl.
Step 2: Dice the avocado. We have made a simple guide how to do this the easy way.
Step 3: Rinse the strawberries, remove the calyx and cut them in slices.
Step 4: Rinse the green asparagus and break off the bottom hard part of them. This is easily done by holding each end of the asparagus and then bend them - it'll now break at the right place.
Step 5: Mix all the prepared vegetables with the spinach.
Step 6: In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing and pour it over the salad.
Step 7: Chop the almonds and sprinkle them over the salad. If you have some extra slices of strawberries use them as decoration on the top of the salad.
