Strawberry Basil Salad* with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Yield: Serves 2

6 cups baby spinach leaves (option to replace a portion of the spinach leaves with romaine)

1/2 oz basil, chopped (a couple of loosely packed tablespoons)

2 cups strawberries, sliced

1 mandarin orange

1/4 red onion, sliced (feel free to omit if you dislike raw onions)

1 tablespoon goat cheese crumbles

2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped (option to substitute with pecans or simply add pecans)

Freshly ground pepper to taste

This salad could not be easier. Simply combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss. Dress with the honey balsamic vinaigrette and serve immediately.

*Also delicious when topped with a grilled chicken breast.

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 garlic clove, minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine balsamic vinegar and EVOO in a jar (preferably with a lid). Then slowly whisk in the honey. Add minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste (starting with a couple small pinches and a few good grinds). Give it a good shake and drizzle on this super fresh, perfectly sweet salad.
