This colourful and reviving Air Fryer Spinach Strawberry Salad is ideal for warm, sunny days or anytime you’re craving some flavour and a boost of nutritious greens.

A symphony of flavours and textures is created in this salad by combining the crispiness of air-fried bacon, the sweetness of ripe strawberries, the earthiness of fresh spinach leaves, and the nuttiness of sliced pecans.


  1. Six cups of baby spinach leaves
  2. 1/2 cup of ripe strawberries that have been cut and hulled
  3. 1/4 cup glazed pecans
  4. Six ounces of shredded Chevre cheese
  5. two tsp olive oil
  6. To taste, add salt and black pepper.
  7. Glaze with balsamic vinaigrette



  1. Set the Air Fryer’s Temperature to 350°F/175°C: Give your air fryer a two to three minute warm-up. Washing, hulling, quartering, and preheating the strawberries all happen at the same time in the air fryer. Put them in a big mixing basin and drizzle with just enough olive oil to cover. (1–2 teaspoons, roughly)
  2. To roast the strawberries, put the chopped strawberries in the air fryer basket in a single layer. The strawberries should be softly roasted after three to five minutes of air fry time, with periodic shaking of the basket. Take out and place aside.
  3. To assemble the salad, put the candied nuts, roasted strawberries, sliced chevre cheese, and baby spinach leaves in a big salad bowl. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper on top.
  4. Dressing Drizzle: Just before serving, dress the salad with as much balsamic glaze as you like. Add extra to taste after using a few teaspoons at first. Gently toss the salad to ensure that the dressing coats all of the components equally.
  5. To serve, move the Air Fryer Spinach Strawberry Salad to separate bowls or serving plates.
  6. Savour: Serve right away and savour your tasty and fresh salad as a side dish or as a quick and nutritious dinner!



  •  Feel free to add grilled chicken, avocado, red onions, or any other favourite items to personalise your salad.
    Toss the salad right before serving, packing the dressing separately to preserve it fresh for potlucks and picnics.
  • Salad leftovers keep well in the fridge for a maximum of one to two days when kept in an airtight container. Savour it while it’s still fresh.



The key to making the ideal Air Fryer Spinach Strawberry Salad is harmony between taste, texture, and appearance. Here are some expert pointers to help you prepare the ideal salad:

  • Use the freshest ingredients that are available. The addition of luscious strawberries, crisp baby spinach, and premium toppings significantly improves the texture and flavour.
  • Toss Just Before Serving: To maintain the crispness and freshness of the spinach, wait until right before serving to toss the salad with the dressing. If preparing the salad in advance, save the dressing in a different container until you’re ready to dine.
  • Harmonise Tastes: As you proceed, taste and adjust the proportions of savoury and sweet ingredients to your taste. You might wish to add extra cheese or salt to balance out overly sweet strawberries.
  • Texture Variety: Try out different textures. Your salad will look more appealing and interesting if it has components that are crunchy (nuts), crispy (bacon), and creamy (cheese or avocado).
  • Chill Ingredients: Before assembling the salad, quickly chill it in the refrigerator if you like it cooler. On hot days, this can be quite refreshing.
  • Presentation: Arrange the salad ingredients in a visually appealing way on individual serving dishes to wow your visitors.
  • Customise Your Salad Never forget that you can customise this salad a lot. To make it uniquely yours, feel free to add your favourite ingredients or swap out parts.
