It’s rare for me to come across a salad that I dislike (although I will say that I’m not a fan of iceberg lettuce). I have several homemade salad dressing recipes that I switch between, and I’m always adding to my arsenal.
This spinach salad is incredibly easy to make, and it has a unique flavor. If you prefer a less sweet taste, feel free to cut down on the maple syrup or add more balsamic vinegar.
Strawberry-Maple Spinach Salad
- 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 3 tsp pure maple syrup
- 3 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 6 ounces spinach leaves
- 1 lb strawberries
Whisk oil, mustard, syrup, and vinegar in a cup.
Do a taste test, adding more balsamic vinegar if you prefer a less sweet dressing.
Slice up the strawberries. Mix into spinach.
Just before serving, pour the dressing over the spinach and strawberries, and mix gently with salad tongs.
