    Yummy! This salad appeals to both the eye and taste buds. I did not have any white balsamic so I used red. I don't think the taste suffered for it. Oh and I used frozen strawberries. Fresh would have been better but here in the West Indies you don't often get them fresh and they cost an arm and a leg when you do. I made sure to drain the excess water when they thawed and patted them dry with paper towels after so they didn't get the salad all soggy. The vinaigrette is subtle and doesn't overpower the lovely flavours. My 10 year old niece even ate about 3/4 cup of this and she HATES spinach. 'Nuff said.
