This simple strawberry spinach salad with cornbread croutons make for a perfect side dish to a summer meal or add some protein for an entrée-sized salad.
I’m a little bummed to be sharing this recipe. Not because I don’t like it I do – I would never share something I didn’t like! But today’s post was supposed to be a sweet and savory cornmeal pancake recipe. Unfortunately I just can’t get the recipe right yet, so no pancakes are happening today. But I promise I’m not giving up on my cornmeal pancake dream!
However, I did discover that tossing day-old cornbread with a little olive oil and baking it for 10-15 minutes gives you delicious cornbread croutons! And while I love me a big salad with a bunch of ingredients, life has been crazy lately making me want some simplicity. As a result, this salad is just summer-fresh strawberries, roasted cornbread, spinach, and a homemade honey apple cider vinegar dressing. Feel free to jazz it up though – I think sliced almonds would be delicious! To turn this from a side salad to an entrée, simply add a protein source such as grilled chicken or steak, or for a vegetarian option you could add roasted chickpeas or tofu.
So here’s a toast to keeping it simple!
