Strawberries are here! No better way than to enjoy them with a refreshing light salad that has you tasting the tropics. I was inspired to make this strawberry and macadamia nut salad from a visit to Maui.
Strawberry and Macadamia Nut Salad Recipe
1 10oz package organicgirl 50/50 spring mix & baby spinach
2 pints strawberries, sliced
1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
9 tablespoons macadamia nut oil
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 teaspoons of whole grain mustard
3 teaspoons honey
Remove the calyx (the green top) from the strawberries. I like using a simple strawberry huller. Slice strawberries into thin pieces.
In a bowl mix the macadamia nut oil, apple cider vinegar, whole grain mustard, and honey with a whisk or fork.
Mix dressing to taste with the 50/50 salad blend. Divide salads among plates and decorate with sliced strawberries and chopped macadamia nuts.
