Strawberry and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

June 9, 2011

Strawberry season is here and and the bounty is beautiful.  Most people turn to strawberry shortcake, strawberry ice cream, and strawberry jam...all delicious and sweet.  I also like to use strawberries in savory recipes as well as sweet.  I made this salad two summers ago when experimenting with this idea.  I really love the strawberry jam in the dressing because it adds sweetness and intensifies that strawberry flavor.  If you want to turn this salad into a main course, a grilled piece of chicken would be lovely.  I think you will be impressed by how well these flavors marry together.
