This ever-popular salad gets a bit of a face-lift with the addition of crunchy pecans and a sweet-tart dressing with fresh ginger and sesame seeds.


Strawberry Spinach Salad

Sesame Spiced Pecans

Honey Ginger Vinaigrette


Toss the spinach with the strawberries, pecans and red onion rings. Drizzle with the dressing, toss lightly and serve immediately.

Note: On the show we garnished the salad with lemon slices and fresh lavender blossoms for a summery look!

Sesame Spiced Pecans

Preheat your oven to 350° F. Place the pecans in a mixing bowl. Combine the butter, brown sugar, cayenne, sea salt and sesame seeds, and pour over the pecans. Toss to coat well. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the pecans out in a single layer. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, stirring them occasionally.

Honey Ginger Vinaigrette

Combine all of the ingredients except the oil in a bowl. Pour the oil in a thin stream into the vinegar mixture, mixing it with a wire whisk, until well blended.
