This Strawberry Spinach Salad featuring homemade Greek yogurt dressing is not only delicious and packed full of flavor, it’s also healthy and super filling.
I love pretty much all kinds of salads but I tend to get bored with them. This salad is everything but boring! It’s packed full of so many delicious flavors and the dressing alone is something that I could pretty much eat with a spoon.
I know it may seem weird to put strawberries on your salad, but seriously, they are a game changer. They give the salad a hint of sweetness that offsets the more bitter, salty flavors found in the spinach, red onions and hardboiled eggs.
And the best part is the dressing is homemade, so it’s much healthier than the store-bought varieties that are heavy and loaded with fats. It’s made with a secret ingredient — Greek yogurt!! I know what you are thinking — yogurt as a dressing!? All I can say is you have to try it before you diss it.
The yogurt dressing is creamy and incredibly delicious (tastes way better than the mayo based dressings) and it goes incredibly well with the spinach. The strawberries add a nice freshness and the croutons give it an interesting crunch + a whole lot of flavor.
