Fresh and vibrant, this Spinach Strawberry Pecan Salad is the perfect accompaniment to a lazy summer BBQ. Pile all the ingredients onto a chopping board, drizzle on the dressing and enjoy with a nice glass of rosé
Spinach Strawberry Pecan Salad
After a little break, I am back with this super delicious and colorful Spinach Strawberry Pecan Salad with Summer Stone Fruit.
I had a week of doing nothing related to Whole Food Bellies, and it was lovely. Sometimes if you get into a bit of a slump with something, stepping away, and getting some fresh perspective is the best thing to do.
I had the most relaxing week, and it really feels like summer now.
There was lots of swimming, lots of early morning walks with the kids to beat the afternoon heat, and waaaay too much ice-cream.
Just what summer should be all about!
Ingredients For This Fresh Summer Salad
Let's eat the rainbow with this deliciously fresh and vibrant salad!
I am in love with this salad, and I seriously think it is just about one of the prettiest salads I have ever seen.
It is just loaded with everything you can find at the farmers market right now:
- heirloom tomatoes,
- summer fruit,
- bell peppers,
- and a good helping of nuts and seeds to fill up those bellies.
The dressing is really simple as well, so although it may look like a show-stopper, it really is as easy as chopping up your produce and layering it on a platter.
My kind of salad.

Beautiful! I'm a huge fan of fruit in my salads but have never used peaches - I have absolutely no idea why I haven't - thanks for waking me up to a new idea. I'll try this and throw a little feta cheese on top, because I just have to.
Admin Donna says
Oh yum, yes the feta sounds like a good plan 🙂

Fruit veggie salad combos are the best right now!! I don't know why I don't see more of this at BBQs. Will try out this salad at the next possibility, thanks a lot! 😀
I know right, people tend to stick to the 'safe' salads at BBQ's 🙂 I am always the one to bring something different these days.
Linda @ Veganosity says
Spinach and strawberries were meant to be together. This is a gorgeous salad! I could eat the entire plate.
Oh I know, they are the perfect combination!!
