Fresh Spring Salad With Strawberries

Fresh Spring Salad With Strawberries

 

In an effort to capture some of spring’s essence, I tossed together some of the ingredients from my fridge. The result is a salad that I will be serving again, and again. The fresh sweet strawberries, atop organic spinach and mixed greens, lightly dressed with a lemon herb vinaigrette…ah spring is in the air! The strawberries and lemon go so good with the crisp spinach and peppery arugula. Adding a delicious goat cheese, with some of your favorite nuts, could make this an easy week night meal. Hello sunshine and your sweet and delicious spring bounty!

 

Ingredients:

Organic spinach

Organic mixed greens

Strawberries, hulled and halved

 

Lemon Herb Vinaigrette:

1/2 C extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

1/4 cup lemon juice (from approximately 2 lemons)

2 teaspoons honey

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

2 T chopped chives

2 T chopped parsley

2 Teaspoon tarragon

salt and pepper

 

In a medium jar with a tight-fitting lid, place lemon zest plus juice, honey, Dijon mustard, olive oil, chives, parsley, and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper, tighten lid, and shake to combine.  Add the strawberries and greens to a large salad bowl and toss to coat evenly in dressing. Excess vinaigrette can be stored and refrigerated, up to 5 days.
