Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is a great, simple, and tasty salad. We like it with spinach, but you could really use any lettuce you want.

1 cup chopped strawberries
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
4 cups fresh spinach
Strawberry Vinaigrette

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and toast the walnuts for three to four minutes. Combine the spinach, cheese, strawberries and walnuts and top with the vinaigrette. We like Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette, but you could just go with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, or make your own. Here’s a quick and easy recipe.

½ cup olive oil
½ pint fresh strawberries, chopped (you can also use frozen strawberries)
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp tarragon
¼ tsp white sugar
Add everything to a blend or food processor and blend until smooth. Keep refrigerated.
