Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry and spinach salad


  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tbsp. sugar

  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Add sugar and cook until syrupy, about three minutes. Remove from heat and stir in olive oil. It may appear to separate.


  • 4 cups baby spinach

  • 2 cups strawberries (whole if they’re small; halved or quartered if large)

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

Wash and dry spinach. Put into a large salad bowl with strawberries and onion. Pour warm (not hot) dressing over spinach salad. Toss and serve immediately.
