Spinach Salad With Strawberries

Recipe by HeatherFeather

I originally saw this prepared on Cooking Live for a 4th of July special years ago, and tried it immediately. It was a huge hit and I have since made this numerous times. This is a wonderful salad, and is one of my favorite versions of this type of salad. I used champagne vinegar and a splash of raspberry vinegar. Dress the salad right before serving or else it will wilt dramatically. I serve this throughout the summer months, but it is also nice for Valentine's Day.

I made this salad a year ago for a dinner party we were having and it was a HUGE success. Thank you so much for sharing!
