Strawberry and Spinach Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

I like the balsamic vinagrette combined with the sweet strawberries and fresh spinach. Unlike most salads with sweet berries the flavors are tangy and mild rather than sugary or syrup-y, allowing the sweetness of the berries to shine through. A little goat cheese on each serving would be nice but is optional. I hope you like it, too.

Yum! Little Miss (DD - 6 year old) loved this salad. I kept to the recipe and it only took me about five minutes to put together. I served it alone for me, but with Recipe #410074 for Hubby and Little Miss. Thanks for posting your recipe Trinkets.
