Spinach, Strawberry, and Goat Cheese Salad

April 2, 2010

Remember those 4 pints of strawberries I bought? Well the compote only used up 2 of those pints. Fortunately, this means I can have my favorite pre-work breakfast of greek yogurt and strawberries, and make Will and my very favorite salad. It’s a cinch to put together, and makes a full meal when paired with a crusty hunk of bread. Strawberries, black pepper, and balsamic vinegar is a classic pairing. It makes for something that’s sweet, spicy, and tart. This salad will make you want to eat your greens!


I’ve also substituted raspberries for the strawberries in this salad, which is also delicious.


3 cups fresh spinach

5 oz goat cheese

8 large strawberries, cut into slices

Black pepper

Balsamic vinegar


Divide spinach into two bowls. Lay strawberry slices across spinach. Crumble goat cheese over salads. Grind black pepper over greens, (a little if you like a little spice, a lot if you like a lot of spice). Sprinkle on balsamic vinegar to taste.

And besides being delicious, it’s a cinch to put together. Perfect when summer rolls in and I want to avoid using my oven at all costs. Raspberries also work well as a substitution for strawberries.
