Another Fantastic Summer Salad


I like my salads with a lot of stuff in them. Fruits, veggies, nuts, cheese, you name it. This is one of those great salads.

Strawberry, Kiwi, and Spinach Salad


2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons raspberry jam
1/3 cup vegetable oil
8 cups spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (we used sliced almonds)
8 strawberries, quartered
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
(crumbled blue cheese or gorgonzola, if desired)


Mix together raspberry vinegar, raspberry jam, and vegetable oil in a small container.

Combine spinach, nuts, strawberries, and kiwi in a salad bowl. Toss with raspberry dressing.

Notes: Many reviewers on suggested adding blue cheese or gorgonzola crumbles to the salad to cut down on the sweetness. I think this would be a fantastic touch. You could also add salt and pepper, to taste, to the dressing. I would suggest starting with a little dressing and tossing the salad and continuing until the salad is dressed to your liking. I felt like there was a little more dressing than the salad needed. Even so, this was a really tasty salad.
