Fresh Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese
Nothing screams spring louder that salads with strawberries! This is one of my favorite from North Carolina’s Our State magazine. I have even just served the goat cheese as an appetizer on several occasions. Enjoy!
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons honey
8 ounces plain goat cheese, sliced or crumbled
8 cups fresh baby spinach, washed and spun dry
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
6 ounces slivered almonds, toasted
In a measuring cup, mix lime juice, black pepper, and honey. Pour over goat cheese and refrigerate. Let marinate overnight, if possible.
Remove stems from spinach (optional). For individual salads, portion fresh spinach on salad plates, followed by strawberries, goat cheese, and toasted almonds. Serve with your favorite vinaigrette, or skip the dressing and enjoy the creaminess of the goat cheese.
