Ingredients

Balsamic Vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • salt to taste (optional)

Salad:

  • 10 oz spinach , fresh (about 10 cups of torn leaves)
  • 3 cups strawberries , cleaned and hulled, sliced
  • ¼ cup almonds , slivered and toasted
  • cup feta cheese , crumbled
  • 8 slices bacon , cooked and chopped

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, and whisk together well. Add salt to taste, if desired. You can serve the dressing immediately or you can cover it and chill for an hour.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients, except the feta cheese and almonds. 
  • Add the dressing to the salad and toss. 
  • Sprinkle feta cheese and toasted sliced almonds on top of the salad or on top of each serving. 
  • NOTE: I like to add feta cheese and toasted sliced almonds AFTER the dressing is mixed in because it helps keep the feta cheese white in color and prevents toasted almonds from getting soggy.
