StrawberrySpinachSalad_3Even thought we got a bit of snow last week, I am still enjoying Spring. I posted about dinner salads previously, but I also love a good salad for lunch!

The first time I saw strawberries in a salad at a health food store in San Diego, I thought it was weird and wasn’t sure if I wanted to try it. However, my curiosity got the best of me, so I ordered some to go for lunch.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well the flavors of strawberries go with spinach and goat cheese. I have ordered the same salad many times since, and I love making my own salads at home as well. This recipe is very easy to make at home, and it’s more affordable and you know what is going into your dressing (so many prepared dressings include GMO soy or canola oil).

    I used to have a recipe similar to this and I lost it and forgot about it. Thanks for sharing! I’m going to make this tomorrow for dinner!

    I love spinach salad with strawberries. This reminds me of one of my favorite salads. The goat cheese sounds great and so does the raspberry vinegar. I always have raspberry jam in my fridge (it my husband’s favorite) and when I want a raspberry vinaigrette I just mix a spoon full of jam with balsamic vinegar and oil.
