Special Spinach Salad with Strawberries

This delicious summer salad recipe is wonderful alongside a steak because it looks great and tastes even better. You can add any other berries or fruits to the mixture. Raspberries and blueberries are nice, or try blackberries later in the season. Wedges of apple are good as well but soak them in lemon juice first so they do not turn brown.

You do not have to use nuts but roasted almonds or pecans add extra protein as well as more crunch. Toast the nuts for ten minutes at 350 degrees F to bring out their flavor.

  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt and black pepper

Combine the spinach, cheese, pecans, and strawberries. Stir the honey with the vinegar and stream in the olive oil while you whisk the mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste and drizzle the dressing over the salad just before you serve it.
