This salad doesn't need a flowery write-up. It is good enough to speak for itself. So ladies and gentlemen, I give to you the incredible, sinfully delicious, can't stop at one helping, burst of flavor, versatile and easy:
Strawberry Spinach SaladOk... wait....a few words....to build the suspense. Did you notice I mentioned "versatile? Try these other ingredients for a variation on a theme. I have made this salad using various combos of the goodies below:
grated parmesan cheese
Ok...now the salad recipe. I promise. No more talk. Just salivation.
Simply Summer Strawberry Spinach Salad
1 bag spinach salad
2 cups diced fresh strawberries
toasted, sugared almonds
crumbled bleu cheese
cooked, crumbled bacon
red onions, thinly sliced
Toss ingredients. Top with dressing.
Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing
In blender combine the following until smooth:
1/2 cup strawberry jam
1/4 cup cider or white wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbls plus 2 tsp vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
Pour over the salad just before serving. You know that. Or else it turns to a soggy wilted spinach salad. But that is an entirely different recipe.
**Note: The dressing in this photo is a poppyseed dressing

Think of pungent blue cheese against the backdrop of tangy onions and the sweet nuts and sweet dressing. Then there is the hearty bacon mixed with delicate lettuce. And the juicy strawberries are like a little present for your tongue in every bite. Oh...go make this salad!!
