Florida strawberries are especially sweet and juicy which makes them go great with leafy greens and intense cheeses like gorgonzola. The citrus-bright flavor of the berries cuts right through the crumbly bite of the rich cheese and the walnuts give a smooth, smokey flavor to the salad.
All and all, between the iron-rich spinach, vitamin rich strawberries and apple, healthy fats and proteins in the walnuts and just a touch of gorgonzola, this is one salad you can feel good about eating; without sacrificing any flavor!
