Strawberry and Spinach Salad
Organically grown strawberries from our friends at Rent’s Due Ranch in Stanwood, Wash. are always welcome additions to summer dishes. A vinegar-based dressing complements the bright strawberry flavors in this salad, which tastes best made with organically grown spinach from Nash Huber’s Dungeness Farm in Sequim, Wash.
