Spinach and Strawberry Salad
Spinach and strawberries are plentiful this time of year so why not blend the two in this  sweet salad along with tonight’s BBQ?
Simply and easy ingredients are:

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Thanks to  Nadira, this salad has become a staple at all our family functions.  We call it Nadira’s Salad.  It is so good we simply have never had any leftover.

I start out by caramelizing the pecans in cane sugar.  Nadira suggests corn syrup. Place the pecans in a fry pan along with the sugar and slowly melt the sugar to cover the pecans. Let cool.  I make double what I need and keep them for the next salad or just to nipple on.

You can add blueberries as well if you like.

Toss the rest of the ingredients in a salad bowl and voilà.

Serves 4
