Spinach Salad

This is my version of a spinach salad. I used baby spinach which has a milder flavor than regular spinach. I also added Gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and fresh strawberries. Enjoy!

4 c baby spinach
2 oz Gorgonzola cheese
2 c sliced strawberries
1 c chopped walnuts

In colander rinse spinach well. Drain well in colander. I use a salad spinner to remove excess liquid (if using pre-washed spinach omit this step). Place dry spinach in salad bowl. Set aside.

Rinse strawberries and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into slices and set aside.

Cut cheese into small cubes. Set aside.

In plastic baggie, place shelled walnuts. Use a rolling pin to go over walnuts twice (if using chopped walnuts, omit step).

In salad bowl combine walnuts, strawberries, cheese with spinach and toss well. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Toss with your favorite dressing.

Makes 4 servings.
