Spinach Salad

Ingredients

Dressing:

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

¾ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper


Salad:

8 cups baby spinach

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 cup fresh strawberries

¾ cup mandarin oranges

½ cup feta cheese

½ cup honey roasted peanuts


Instructions

Dressing:

Set the olive oil aside and whisk together all remaining ingredients.

Add a small drizzle of olive oil and whisk thoroughly until combined. Repeat until all olive oil is added. Doing this gradually ensures that it emulsifies, which prevents the dressing from separating. Serve immediately or chill prior to serving.

Be sure to shake or stir before each use.


Salad:

Wash and dry the fruit. Slice the stems off the strawberries and slice the strawberries vertically.

Arrange the spinach on a serving platter. Drizzle with 3-4 tablespoons of dressing and top with fruit. Sprinkle with feta.

Drizzle with a little more dressing and serve the remaining dressing on the side. Top with honey roasted peanuts and serve!


Notes

Pro Tips:

Cheese: Feta is my cheese of choice for this, but goat cheese or Shaved Parmesan work great too!

Nuts: Aside from Honey Roasted Peanuts, you can also use Walnuts, Almonds, or Cashews!

Add-ons: Other great additions include hard boiled eggs, bacon, avocado, red onions, cucumbers, sliced apples
