Spinach and Strawberry Salad
Spinach and strawberries, which happen to come into the market at about the same time, taste fantastic together.
For the vinaigrette
- 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Add to list
- 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Add to list
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic Add to list
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Add to list
For the salad
Make the vinaigrette in a large salad bowl. Whisk the balsamic vinegar with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss in the spinach leaves, using tongs or clean hands to roll the leaves until they are lightly coated with the balsamic vinaigrette.
Distribute salad evenly between 4 plates and place the split strawberries evenly over the salads. Sprinkle with a little extra salt and pepper. With a vegetable peeler, cut wide curls from the Parmesan cheese, allowing the curls to fall on top of each salad.
