1 package (10 oz.) fresh spinach (about 10 cups of torn leaves)
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries (cleaned and hulled)
1/4 cup almonds, slivered and toasted
1/4 to 1/2 cup cheese (feta or blue cheese)
8 sliced of bacon chopped
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste (optional)
In a medium bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, and whisk together well. Add salt to taste, if desired. You can serve the dressing immediately, or you can cover it and chill for an hour.
In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients, except for the cheese and almonds. Add the dressing to the salad and toss. Sprinkle the cheese and toasted sliced almonds on top of the salad, or on top of each serving. Enjoy!
