Spinach Salad with Strawberries
Picking up some fresh, local strawberries today at the Capitol View Farmer's Market. I'll be turning them into a wonderful vinaigrette to top this spectacular salad.
6 oz fresh baby spinach
1 medium nectarine, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
2 medium kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup halved fresh strawberries
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp dried tarragon
1/8 tsp pepper
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp olive oil
In a large bowl, combine the spinach, nectarine, strawberries, kiwi and walnuts. Place the first six vinaigrette ingredients in a blender; cover and process for 15 seconds. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat.
