I found this salad on shutterbean. I absolutely adore Tracy's site. You should totally check it out. There's a lot of yummy food..and decorating tips..and lots of pretty things. But anyway, back to this salad. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because Alex didn't want fruit on his salad, so I just made a single serving.. I used our two Mistos to make my dressing by just spraying a bit of balsamic and a bit of olive oil. It was delicious, but I bet it'd be even better if you actually made the dressing you're supposed to. I did marinate the strawberries. They're delicious. Don't be afraid of balsamic on strawberries. So good. And I toasted walnuts instead of pecans. Yum yum. But anyway. Make this salad. I've adapted the recipe below.
Spinach Arugula Strawberry Salad
1/2 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulled and sliced
2 T balsamic vinegar
2 T olive oil
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
about 3 1/2 cups arugula, washed, dried & trimmed
about 3 1/2 cups spinach leaves, rinsed & dried1/2 cup walnuts
Toast the walnuts on a baking sheet for about 8 minutes at 350ºF. Marinate the strawberries in 1 T of the balsamic vinegar for 5-10 minutes. Mix together the olive oil, other T of balsamic, salt & pepper in a small bowl. Sit aside. In a large bowl, toss together the spinach, arugula, walnuts, dressing & strawberries. Serve and enjoy!
