Strawberry Salad

14 Mar

My mom and dad, for their 35th anniversary dinner (congrats to them!), ate at a Zagat top rated restaurant called Beach Bistro on Holmes Beach in Santa Maria, Florida. The tables are on the beach! Can’t you just imagine? How romantic! Your toes in the sand, the sound of gentle crashing waves, and an amazing dinner all in one. Yes, please! This salad isn’t on the menu. You have to ask for it… It just keeps getting more romantic, doesnt it?

My mom liked the salad so much she decided to go home and make it herself. Wonder where I get it? Guess the apple doesn’t fall far… Anyway, you have to try this salad. You won’t regret it. It’s delicious.

Strawberry Salad

Time: 5 minutes
Level: Easy
Servings: 4-6

1-2 c. fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 c. pecans, toasted or glazed
2 oz. bleu cheese
8 oz. fresh spinach leaves

Dressing:
1/4 c. oil
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. tarragon
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
dash dry mustard

Put all salad ingredients  in a large serving bowl.

 

Whisk all dressing ingredients together. Toss salad with dressing to coat. Serve immediately. Yum!

Tips
– Add grilled chicken or shrimp to make this salad a full meal.
– Use fresh blueberries or canned madarine oranges instead of strawberries for a spin. But try the strawberries first. Soooo good.
