It makes me ohhhh so happy that strawberry season is here! My mama gifted me with a big bowl of fresh, local strawberries and the first thing I did was make this Strawberry Spinach Salad with a Homemade Red Wine Vinaigrette.
It’s so hearty that you can eat it as a meal in itself. I ate it as a side with grilled chicken – I’m so happy that warm weather is here so I can start grilling more!
This spinach salad is so easy to make and full of good stuff: Fresh strawberries, red onions, toasted walnuts and feta cheese. Blue cheese would also be great but I already had feta in my fridge.
The homemade red wine vinaigrette is very simple. The bottled stuff is good to me too, but I already had everything to make it (you probably do too!). The recipe I’m providing for the vinaigrette yields ¾ cup which was enough for me and my guests, but if you’re a dressing lover you might want to double the recipe.
This recipe yields enough for 2 large meal size salads or 4 side salads.
