For the Strawberry Tahini Dressing
In the base of a blender, add all of the dressing ingredients except the dried basil and blend. Stir in the dried basil. Taste and adjust to personal preference. Set aside.
Toast the almonds on the stovetop: add the almonds to a pan and place over medium heat, stirring occasionally for 2-5 minutes until almonds are just golden. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Add spinach to a large bowl, layer on the strawberries, berries, apple slices, avocado slices, red onion, cheese, toasted almonds, and Craisins if using.
Top your salad with additional sliced almonds and dress with the strawberry tahini dressing. Serve immediately.
The dressing can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
