Low Carb Salads: Strawberry Spinach Parmesan Salad

This is a lovely Spring salad that shows off strawberries to their advantage. It's also a no recipe salad; all about the ingredients and the way their flavors play off each other with zero cooking.

The sweet flavor notes of the strawberries kiss the tang of balsamic in a really wonderful way. I see now why balsamic vinegar and fruit is sometimes served as a dessert.

Then you have the saltiness of the cheese with the zing of onion. Very nice.

Pair with a nice grilled steak or chicken for a fast, elegant meal.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

-Fresh strawberries, roughly 2-3 strawberries per person
-Very thinly sliced red onion, about 1/4 of the onion
-8 oz. Good quality shaved Parmesan cheese--2 oz per person
-1 tub organic spinach
-Balsamic salad dressing (I used Ken's Creamy Balsamic Dressing which is a bit carby, but it tasted great.)


1.Wash what needs washing.

2.Slice the strawberries and onion.

3.Build your salad.
