Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad

There are certain moments in life that are often referred to as “ah ha” but I actually prefer “duh.” I recently had one of those revelations when I discovered these Mexican Pizzas from Jenna. I happen to covet any and all Mexican food, so how could I have missed this insanely basic – but crazy good – weeknight meal?

I mean mixing tacos and pizza? Of course. I’m embarrassed it took me so long.

This salad is similar in its simplistic ingredient list and preparation – it’s one of those recipes that might make you say “duh,” then proceed to wonder why you haven’t mixed avocado and strawberries before. Or maybe you’ve tried a variation of it, but this is definitely the best combination. It’s the perfect salad for entertaining because it looks impressive but only takes a few minutes to throw together. I typically plate the salads in advance for everyone; however, you can easily make it all in one big bowl to bring to a family dinner, for example.

Enjoy! – Courtney
