Spinach Strawberry Salad

Ingredients

  • 5-6 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
  • 2 Cups Strawberries, cut to bite size
  • 5 oz Gorgonzola Cheese
  • 8 Strips Cooked Bacon, chopped (optional - but so good)
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Pecans, bite size, toasted

Directions
Clean spinach, place in large bowl and top with ingredients.  Add desired amount of dressing, toss and enjoy.  

Tips

  • You can add more or less of each ingredient - do what you prefer.  
  • Top with grilled chicken breast - a favorite in our house!
  • To toast pecans - place in skillet on medium high heat, stirring until lightly toasted.
  • If you plan on serving the entire salad, go ahead and add the dressing a little at a time, blending until you reach desired amount.  If not,  keep dressing separate and add individually.
