I love an easy salad…because that’s what salads are supposed to be, right?  Oh–and healthy.  This quick salad has been my lunch go-to lately and has me really looking forward to shopping for fresh, local berries this summer in California.  Adding strawberries to the balsamic vinaigrette is such a nice change – I love the additional tartness!

     for the salad:
  • fresh spinach or  spring mix
  • 5-6 strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
     for the dressing:
  • 2/3 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp dried thyme


Wash and slice your strawberries.  Go ahead and make your salad and slice extra strawberries for the dressing.  Add the dressing ingredients into a blender until smooth and drizzle over salad.


Yum! Let me know if you try this salad. Thank so much for reading! XO –
