Whether you’re barbecuing, relaxing or working this Memorial Day weekend, one thing is for sure… this weekend kicks off summer eating! Ok, so maybe you already started eating caprese salads and fresh watermelon, I am guilty too. But, prior to this weekend it wasn’t official.
I have a salad for you that will make you the star of any barbecue, work picnic or family reunion. It is simple, fresh, and an explosion of flavor with each bite!
Strawberry Spinach Salad
You will need:
•2 bags of baby spinach
•1 pint of strawberries, sliced
•3/4 pound of grapes, cut in halves
•1 pound of bacon, cooked and crumbled
•1 cup olive oil
•1 cup sugar
•1/2 cup wine vinegar
•1 tsp salt
•1 tsp minced onion
•1 tsp worcestershire sauce
The hardest part of this recipe is just prepping everything. Make sure you wash your spinach well and dry it even better. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing well. The dressing will tend to separate so make sure you keep stirring. Combine all of the salad components and you’re finished!
I always serve the dressing on the side because it will become extremely soggy if you put it over the salad ahead of time. And if you have vegetarians you can obviously put the bacon on the side as well. Feel free to substitute the bacon for turkey bacon too!
And you might want to print this recipe out because everyone is going to want it. Oh, and you might as well get used to making it because not only will your friends and family be asking you to make it…but you’ll probably have a stash of it waiting in your fridge all summer long. Yup, it is that good.
