Serves 1 or maybe 2, as an app.

For the Salad Bed:

  • 3 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 of a Red Delicious apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh picked strawberries, diced small
  • When at all possible, choose organic

For the glaze:

  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry all-fruit jam (such as Polaner)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger root, very finely diced
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  1. Prepare your glaze by combining all the ingredients in a small saucepan over lowest possible temperature, and stir constantly until liquefied (about 2-3 minutes). Allow to sit at room temperature to cool slightly and incorporate the flavors.
  2. Arrange salad onto a plate, and drizzle with the glaze.
