Yet Another Spinach Salad!

Posted in Salads, Vegetables at 6:22 pm by Sheila OConnell

I got this recipe from the Whole Foods app.  It is easy to prepare and delicious!  The recipe below serves 2 with dressing left over.

Ingredients:
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tbsp fruit vinegar (I used 1 tbsp fig balsamic and 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, which is what I had on hand)
1/2 tsp brown sugar (optional)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 oz baby spinach (I remove the stems and tear into bite-size pieces, but you don’t have to do that)
1/2 cup strawberries, thinly sliced
1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1 oz goat cheese, crumbled
Steps:
Dressing:  In a small bowl, whisk together the chopped shallot, brown sugar and vinegar.  Whisk in the olive oil.
Salad:  Put spinach, strawberries, almonds and goat cheese in a salad bowl.  Add about half of the dressing and toss well.  Serve immediately.

Reserve the remaining dressing for another day.
