Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep ahead of time: You can whip up the dressing a couple of days in advance. Save time by prepping the veggies and combining everything except the avocado and dressing up to 24 hours before, store them in separate containers.
  • How to store: Leftover salad can last in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 to 3 days. However, the spinach will wilt and the strawberries might get mushy.
  • How to freeze: It is not recommended to freeze this salad.
