    This is so incredibly delicious. My husband even loved it (a miracle since he is a picky eater). I did double the amount of spinach; there certainly was enough dressing to cover everything. Totally awesome and simple recipe!!! - 6/1/09

  • 1serv=5 baby spinach leaves, 1lg strawberry, seven almonds=<1c. This seems like a very small serving... I uploaded a pic which fit very loosely in a 1c. container. - 6/19/11

  • Brought this to our ladies night gathering and everyone loved it. I used one full bag of spinach instead of the 1 cup, substituted 1/2 t. sugar for the agave syrup, and used one full carton of strawberries (because I love them!). Normally don't like balsamic, but this dressing definitely works! - 4/3/11

  • I eat this spinach salad all summer. I use 2 packed cups of spinach and replace the agave with small amount of stevia. I also use pecans or walnuts depending on what I have in the house. - 9/8/10

  • Another yummy sounding recipe!

    Thank you for posting it.

    Another way to toast almonds is in a pan on a stove top burner. Simply heat the almonds while stirring them until they are toasted to your liking. Do not leave them unattended! They toast quickly!

    Be blessed!
