Let them eat Spinach

I'm not a huge spinach fan. Unless of course you hand me a bowl of spinach dip, then I'm a huge fan. It's really a texture thing for me more then a taste thing.  I just find fresh spinach a little hard to chew. All that being said my family and I absolutely love this Spinach Salad and the secret to this salad makes it a texture I can enjoy.

We have played with the ingredients over time but two remain the same - strawberries and spinach.
This time I used feta cheese and almonds but in the past I've used blue cheese and walnuts. Since I was bringing this salad to Alexa's daycare for Teacher Appreciation Day I chose to keep the almonds and cheese on the side just in case one of the teachers had a nut allergy or didn't like the cheese.
The dressing we perfer to use is Brianna's Home Style Blush Wine Vinaigette. This is the dressing with a strawberry on the front. Unfortunally the grocery store was out so I had to substitute. This is not a problem because any raspberry dressing taste delicious.
The secret to this salad is heating up the dressing for a few seconds before drizzling it on your salad. The heat from the dressing is just enough to soften the spinach. Perfect for a picky eater like me.
How would you dress up this salad. I've love to hear your ideas. Enjoy

Until next time,
