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
