Strawberry Spinach Salad with homemade dressing
Strawberry Spinach salad is so refreshing it reminds me of spring and summer. A few years back I sold Pampered Chef products and this salad recipe was in one of the cookbooks but my homemade vinegar and dressing is what makes this salad truly unique. If you don’t want to make the vinegar you can get away with it and just use red wine vinegar. For the how to on making the strawberry vinegar go here for pictures and tutorial.
