Strawberry and Walnut Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

The weather is warming up and strawberries are becoming plentiful!  Unfortunately, I didn’t have any good home grown ones to play with, but I did hit a good deal at the supermarket.  I decided to use them in a few recipes, one being a salad.  A nice light salad with fruit just screams springtime to me!  This one would be perfect for a bbq!

Strawberry and Walnut Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

Ingredients:
mixed green salad/baby spinach, washed and spun dry
goat cheese crumbles
walnuts
red/purple onions
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
honey
1-2 tbsp brown sugar (to taste)

For the dressing, mix the red wine vinegar, mustard and olive oil together.  It’s easy to put it in a jar and just shake it.  Add honey and brown sugar until it suits your taste.

Prepare your salad using the remaining ingredients.  Drizzle lightly with the dressing.
