Add this Strawberry Vinaigrette Spinach Salad to your regular diner rotation! This salad has a spinach base, topped with walnuts, goat cheese, fresh strawberries, diced apples and finally tossed in a homemade strawberry vinaigrette dressing. The dressing is a perfect balance of sweet and tangy. This salad is perfect for any time of year, but especially satisfying for summer and fall!
This blog post was originally published as a guest post for my friend Erin at The Speckled Palate when she had her first daughter. Both of our blogs and styles have evolved and grown since then, so this recipe was in need of a refresh! I also reworked the salad dressing for this recipe and love it even more now!
Salads are still a new thing for me. I grew up really not eating anything wholesome and when I finally did learn to like salads a little, I always chose a caesar salad. Then as things evolved even more for me, I started to enjoy spinach salads. Still to this day, when given the choice, I’ll choose a spinach base for any salad.
I think part of it is I enjoy knowing that the base of my salads will always taste the same, so therefore I can switch things up in the salad toppings department….
