Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Typically I don’t like fruit in my salad…but a spinach salad topped with sliced strawberries and drizzled with a Balsamic Vinaigrette is the exception. The combination of perfectly ripened strawberries, baby spinach and the sweet and tangy balsamic sure is tasty! I paired this salad with a homemade egg and cheese on an English Muffin sandwich for a delicious dinner.
