This salad is simple as can be but so darn good! It’s one of those combos that I’m embarrassed to call a “recipe” but which I had to share.
We’ll have this for dinner with a hunk of crusty bread but it would be great topped with some grilled salmon or sliced chicken for something a bit more substantial.
I’ve used Trader Joe’s spiced, slightly sweetened pecans in the past for extra incredible-ness but regular pecans aren’t too shabby.
- raw baby spinach - 12 oz
- strawberries - 1 c, sliced
- pecans - 1/4 c, crumbled
- goat cheese - 4 oz
- olive oil - 2 tbs
- balsamic vinaigrette - 1.5 tbs
- Dijon mustard - 1/2 tsp
- honey - 1/2 tsp
- salt and pepper - to taste
Combine vinaigrette ingredients and whisk until combined.
Combine spinach, strawberries, pecans and goat cheese in a large bowl and toss with a small amount of dressing. Serve with remaining dressing on the side.
