A wonderful fresh salad to welcome in Spring! I couldn't find a recipe for Strawberry Spinach Salad with vinaigrette, so made this one up. I was particularly pleased with the Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing.
Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing:
In a non-stick skillet, cook almonds and brown sugar slowly, stirring often, until sugar is melted and coats almonds. about 10 minutes. Watch closely to make sure the almonds don't burn. Cool on wax paper.
In a large bowl, layer salad ingredients. Cover and chill if not serving immediately. Just before serving, toss with dressing.
For Dressing: In a blender, combine strawberries, balsamic vinegar, garlic clove, honey, fresh ground pepper, and Italian seasoning, blend till smooth. With blender running, add olive oil. Season to taste. Chill if not using soon, but let the dressing come to room temperature before serving.
