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
mixed green salad/baby spinach, washed and spun dry
goat cheese crumbles
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
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.
