Spinach Salad for Two

Spinach Salad for Two

When did you discover the marvels of fresh spinach? I was 16 and never looked back! I love the flavor of baby spinach and it is marvelous in salads.

Spinach and fruit pair together very well. Instead of using salad dressing, try just adding a few toppings to let the fruit really shine in the salad.

Although I don’t drink tea, I felt the classic standard, “Tea for Two” was appropriate for today’s blog. So take a listen to my favorite version of “Tea for Two” sung by Ella Fitzgerald with Count Basie. Does she just make you want to have a relaxing lunch with a friend enjoying spinach salad?

Spinach Salad for Two


  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 16 raspberries
  • 6 strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese
  • 6 pecans, toasted


  1. Divide spinach between two salad bowls.
  2. Rinse strawberries in a strainer. Slice. Set aside.
  3. Rinse raspberries.
  4. Put half of raspberries and half of strawberries on each bed of spinach in the bowls.
  5. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon each of Parmesan cheese and feta cheese on each salad.
  6. Break pecans into pieces. Top each salad with half of the pecans.
