This spinach, strawberry and almond salad is so easy and quick to throw together, all up it takes 15 minutes tops, and it’s deliciously satisfying every time. We’ve had this one both as an after school snack and as a side dish to dinner. The sweetness of the fruit makes the spinach a yummy treat but it’s still getting in that superfood goodness!

  • ½ cup slivered almonds
