Strawberry, Spinach and Nut Salad

Eat your fruits and veggies! When I can find the time to get to the grocery store I like to stock up on berries, nuts and spinach. These three ingredients are packed full of nutrients and make a delicious combo in a cup (smoothie) or on a plate (salad). Since I make smoothies like every other day, I decided to focus on making a salad. One of my favorite salad combinations includes strawberries, spinach, macadamia nuts and walnuts. I added chia seeds and a balsamic vinaigrette to this recipe.

I also love red and green color combo... is it Christmas yet?

What's your favorite salad combo?
