This salad is so simple and so delicious! It is great with grilled chicken hot off the grill! I like my dressing on the sour side, so you may want to taste it and adjust it to match what you like.
1 10 oz bag of spinach
3 cups sliced strawberries
Chopped nuts of your choice. Walnuts are especially good, or pecans, or even pistachios. Get wild!
1/2 cup of olive or walnut oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1 TBS honey or real maple syrup
1/2 TBS sesame seeds
1/2 TBS poppy seeds
1-2 tsp orange zest
Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a container and microwave for 20 seconds to melt the honey. You won’t have to do this if you use real maple syrup. This can be made a day or two ahead if you like. I think dressings and sauces are always better the next day.
Then slice the strawberries and toss on top of the spinach. Sprinkle on the nuts.
Toss the dressing at the last minute!
