Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing is a perfect summer salad. It is loaded with fresh ingredients including the vinaigrette dressing!
We've been getting some better strawberries in the stores lately - while it is obviously not strawberry season in Minnesota, it is somewhere and they have been so flavorful and juicy! One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in a salad tossed with other yummy ingredients.
Of course you could toss in whatever you might be craving too. I happened to use goat cheese but blue or feta would also be a good choice. What else can you think of?
Be sure to make the dressing too - it's really easy and I bet you have most of the ingredients on hand. If you are short on time, this would pair well with a store bought poppy seed dressing. Either way you will love digging into this!
Stayed tuned, I'm sure in the next couple of weeks, I'll have a new salad to share. I never tire of them and I hope you don't either! Have a great week!!
