Spinach Strawberry and Toasted Almond Salad

Another raw salad from my recipe diary. No cooked ingredient other than toasted almonds.

Ingredients :
Strawberry : 7-8
Spinach : 10-12 leaves
Almonds : 7 to 8
Olive Oil : 1 tsp

Procedure :
1. Chop the strawberry and wash the spinach leaves and chop them too.
2. Now add the toasted almonds and olive oil on top.

Notes :

How to Toast Almonds:

Method 1:
Heat a pan and keep it on a low flame and dry toast the almonds. Make sure not to burn them.

Method 2:
Preheat the oven to 350 degree centigrade. Spread the almonds on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes

Method 3:
This may not work out for everyone as it might burn a little. It depends on the power of the microwave. Spread the almonds on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 30 seconds. And taste the crunchiness and if necessary microwave for 12 more seconds.
