It’s nice weather again so this Strawberry and Walnut Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette dressing is one of my favorite salads to enjoy. Many evenings I like to whip up a soup and salad to have for dinner. I have always been an iceberg lettuce kind of girl until I tried a Strawberry Walnut Spinach salad. Now I like to have spinach salads quite often. I have even gotten the hubby and a couple of the kiddos to eat this combo from time to time.
Strawberry and Walnut Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing
Strawberries and walnuts have always been a good combo to enjoy. Pair them up with some strawberry vinaigrette dressing recipe and it is oh so yummy. If you are craving spring and summer as much as I am, this salad will have you feeling as though it were already here.
3/4 cup Olive Oil
1/2 lb Strawberries
2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Tarragon
1/4 tsp Sugar
Fresh Baby Spinach
Shaved Parmesan Cheese
Add all dressing ingredients to food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Toast walnuts over low heat until slightly brown.
Place Spinach on plates.
Top with strawberries and walnuts.
Add shaved Parmesan cheese on top.
Serve with dressing.
Today was such a wonderful sunshiny and warmer day (I think we hit 60, yipee). I enjoyed a salad and a lemonade for dinner. I am looking forward to making lots of salads and enjoying spring and summer with lots of fruits and veggies.
Do you eat more salads in the spring and summer? I will admit, I consume salads all year long but I tend to load them up with more fresh fruits and fresh vegetables during the warmer months.
