3 cups spinach

10 sliced strawberries

1/2 cup feta cheese

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 a lemon

Salt & pepper (to taste)

Optional: pistachios


Rinse spinach and strawberries and pat dry

Slice strawberries and toss them with spinach in a large bowl

Sprinkle feta (+ pistachios) in bowl as you continue to mix the salad

In small container, mix vinegar and olive oil

Add lemon, salt and pepper to dressing (tip: keep sauce in separate container until right before you serve the salad so as to prevent the spinach from becoming soggy) 

I debuted this salad at a potluck last year and it was a huge hit. It has been my go-to summer potluck item for a while because it’s so simple to make and is also very tasty. If I want to change it up a little, I add watermelon instead of strawberries to make it more refreshing!

    I’ve been making a variation of this salad all summer! I use spring mix, sliced strawberries, slivered almonds, goat cheese or feta cheese, and a salad dressing made with red wine vinegar and olive oil. Now I want to try it with pistachios and a balsamic vinegar dressing! That sounds so good.
