Spinach salad with strawberries and avocado

I have not eaten such a tasty and smooth salad like this one for a while. I normally cook salads by combination, that is, I combine whatever I have in the fridge that I consider it can work together. But in this case it has been a premeditated salad, that is, I have looked for all ingredients – I have to say that I was not very convinced at the beginning with the combination of flavors-, and of course it has captivated me, I will repeat it again as many times as necessary.

The combination spinach/strawberries is ideal, since spinach are soft leaves that are desperately expecting to change their life for a more sophisticated one, that’s why they combine perfectly with fruity flavors. Blue cheese and bacon provide the strong point, while the softness of avocado makes it the perfect balance.

If you are bored of eating almost always the same type of salad, try this one, it´s awesome.
