Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Feta, and Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette


Chef’s Notes: Wanting to create a salad, I contemplated what I had in the fridge, and wondered if strawberries and feta were compatible flavors. I googled and found umpteen recipes, so I decided the answer was yes. I used the principles of several different recipes to come up with this one.

Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Feta, and Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette
Serves 4

4 C. fresh spinach leaves
1 C. sliced strawberries
1/4 C. feta cheese
1/4 C. walnut pieces, toasted

Vinaigrette
3 T. balsamic vinegar
1 T. honey
Pinch of black pepper
1/4 C. olive oil

To make vinaigrette, combine vinegar, honey, and pepper in food processor. Process while slowly drizzling in olive oil. Continue to process until mixture is completely combined and frothy.

In a medium size mixed bowl, toss together spinach and strawberries. Pour in dressing and mix. Top with feta cheese and walnuts.
