Strawberry Spring Salad in a Woven Bread Bowl

Vibrant crispy greens are paired with sweet, fresh strawberries and served in a delightful easy woven bread bowl!

Ingredients

2
cans Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust
8
cups fresh spinach
1/2
small purple onion, diced
1/3
cup feta cheese
1/3
cup walnuts, chopped
1
cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4
cup white vinegar
1
clove garlic
3 1/2
tablespoons sugar
1/4
cup canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Nonstick cooking spray

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • 2 Spray the outside of a medium-sized metal bowl generously with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 3 Open Pillsbury™ pizza dough, unroll, and slice lengthwise into 1/2-inch wide strips.
  • 4 On a clean work surface covered in parchment paper, lay out 1/2 of the pizza dough strips, so they sit about 3/4-inch apart. Beginning in the center of the strips, weave the second half of the pizza strips in and out to create a basket base.
  • 5 Gently flip the weaved bread dough on top of the inverted prepared metal bowl. Fold the edges of the bread up around the outside, bottom portion of the bowl to create the woven bread bowl. Trim edges as needed to fit neatly.
  • 6 Place inverted bowl with bread weave on top on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 18-23 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and cool completely before gently removing the bread bowl from the metal bowl.
  • 7 To make salad, toss together spinach, onions, feta, walnuts, and strawberries. In a blender, combine vinegar, garlic, sugar, and canola oil until pureed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 8 Just before serving, toss salad in dressing in a large bowl. Gently transfer to bread bowl, taking care so salad doesn't compact. Serve immediately.

From here, it’s just three basic thingos that you needos. Metal bowl, knife, crust.

Start by spraying the outside of the bowl with nonstick baking spray.

Now, open the dough and unroll it. Cut the pizza dough rectangles into small strips, about ½” wide.

To start the weave, lay half of your dough pieces along a piece of parchment, or very large cutting board. Create the weave by threading the dough through the pieces you’ve laid down, starting with the center piece.

Working from the center out, weave the dough strips through each other. The dough pieces should be no more than ½” apart from each other.

Gently press the dough together once woven, especially around the ends and edges.

Then, invert your weave on top of the prepared bowl.

That sounds like a hair thing. It’s a dough thing! Don’t get confused.

If there are big pieces hanging off, just slice off the parts that are way too big for their britches.

Then, tuck the edges around the edges of the bowl, rolling them to create a pretty “lip” for your bread bowl.

Now you’re ready to bake! Just toss your metal bowl into a preheated oven and let it bake until golden brown, about 18-22 minutes.
