  2. Peel and cut nuts into pieces, toast in frying pan without oil for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Wash the spinach leaves and drain the water, put them on paper towel and wait until they dry. Put the spinach leaves into colander and steam for 1 minute of less until they become a little bit soft.
  4. Mix together orange and lemon juices, add honey, grapeseed oil, pinch of hot chili pepper and ground cloves. Stir until combine.
  5. Drizzle the strawberries and tomatoes with 1 or 2 tablespoons of prepared dressing.

Tips: If you couldn’t find a vegan parmesan in store, just replace it with other vegetarian cheese, which you can buy. However, you can prepare salad without cheese, but the taste will be not like this.
Use a vegetable peeler to make thin cheese slices.
