Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette


This strawberry spinach salad with balsamic is a great easy summer dish with many options for mixing and matching. Plus, the salad looks pretty fancy. You can throw in any summer fruit or berry with this mix. Blueberries and raspberries are a good choice, as are blackberries later in the season. The nuts are optional, but pecans or roasted almonds add a little crunch and more protein!
