June Farmers Market Finds: Strawberry Spinach Salad

Have you ever made your own salad dressing?  Do you think it’s too hard?  I just learned it is so easy to make Balsamic Vinaigrette, I will never buy a bottle from the store again! It’s as easy as one-two-three:

  1. Pour equal parts balsamic vinegar and olive oil into a jar with a screw on top
  2. Add a dash of Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt a pepper
  3. Screw on the top tightly, shake until well mixed, and enjoy on your salad!  More detailed on ingredients / portions are below…

This dressing goes great with one of my favorite summer salads – the Strawberry Spinach Salad with ingredients fresh from the Farmers Market.  Now that strawberries are popping up at all the Oregon markets, I’ll probably be eating this salad once a week.
