Wednesday Kitchen - Summer Salad

Here on Wednesday Kitchen with the JET Team, I've been pondering... who wants to cook in this heat?!

In the summer months we do a lot of grilling outside, and we eat a lot of salads. We often get up early and head out to the farms for fresh pickings. My daughter and I were very happy with our strawberry pickings this year - they were so good and there were so many! We also picked spinach and other vegetables - they just taste so fresh and good :)

Here is an easy summer salad we made with a spinach & salad mix, strawberries & blueberries. My daughter made the dressing for us, as she makes delicious dressings. We're trying to eat light and healthy, and we enjoyed this salad a lot.

There's no recipe to follow, just throw the following ingredients together!


  • ½ cup of olive oil, or oil to your liking
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon minced onion
  • ¼ cup of distilled white vinegar
  • Fresh spinach & salad mix
  • Strawberries cleaned and sliced
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • Blueberries (optional)

For a more substantial meal, adding some grilled chicken will complement the salad well. Enjoy!
