Total Time:5 minutes
For the Salad
6 cups baby spinach, rinsed and spun dry
1 cup chopped strawberries
1⁄4 cup sliced almonds
1⁄4 cup crumbled goat cheese or chevre
For the dressing
1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp brown sugar
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
In a medium bowl add balsamic vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, salt, and pepper; whisk well until the sugar is dissolved. Add oil very slowly, whisking constantly while adding. (Alternatively, you could pour the vinegar mixture into a jar, then add the oil and shake to combine. Set aside.)
In a bowl or dish, add half of the spinach, strawberries, goat cheese, and nuts. Drizzle dressing over the top. Repeat for second salad.
