Spinach and strawberry salad

Spinach and strawberry salad


  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 6 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta cheese if desired)
  • Balsamic vinaigrette


Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Toss in pecans and brown sugar, stirring to coat. Cook over medium heat until sugar begins to caramelize (about 3 minutes). Spread pecans on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet to cool.

In a salad bowl, layer spinach leaves, strawberries, goat cheese and pecans. Dress with balsamic vinaigrette just before serving.
