Strawberry, Goat Cheese, And Walnut Salad

Strawberry, Goat Cheese, And Walnut Salad

With all the snow outside my house, it is hard to remember that we are entering Spring very soon! I love all the fresh fruits and vegetables that start to become seasonal in spring. We are entering strawberry growing season, and the market I go to is packed to the brim with the juicy, plump treats! I love combining strawberries with some greens, pizzaz, and a little crunch– which is exactly what this salad does!

This salad is a combination of fresh strawberries, nutty and crunchy walnuts, delicate baby spinach, and just a hint of creamy tang from crumbled goat cheese. Drizzled with a light and refreshing strawberry balsamic dressing, your taste buds will jump with joy as you embrace the flavors of spring. Toasting the walnuts adds a depth and complexity to an elegant, easy, and satisfying side.
