Recipe: Strawberry, Blue Cheese, Walnut, Spinach Salad

The Strawberries That Inspired The Salad

Over the weekend I made a few things with my veggies from the Farm Coop. My favorite was, Strawberry Spinach Salad. Fresh strawberries from the farmer's market paired with earthy crunchy spinach. The blue cheese with the candied walnuts took it over the top. So yum!


1 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 candied walnuts (bake nuts in oven tossed w/butter, maple syrup, s&p)

1/2 blue cheese (I used Great Blue Hill)

Fresh Spinach

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Bake walnuts in a 350 degree oven tossed with sugar/butter mixture for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

I always make the salads right on the plates. Separate spinach in equal portions. Slice strawberries and place on spinach. Slice blue cheese and crumble on salad. Coarsely chop cool walnuts and add. Lightly toss the ingredients together. Drizzle with your favorite balsamic vinaigrette. Finish with a little sea salt and fresh pepper. Voila!
