Strawberry Spinach Salad

Another awesome recipe from my patio dinner. Big hit. Probably my new favorite salad. So many of my favorite things in it. I will defiantly be making this again.... and again.

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • garlic salt or garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • Salad:
  • one package (10 oz) fresh spinach (about 10 cups of torn leaves)
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries (cleaned and hulled)
  • 1 cup avocado, chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 mango, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, and whisk together well. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can serve the dressing immediately or you can cover it and chill for an hour.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients, except the cashew nuts. Add the dressing to the salad and toss. Sprinkle cashew nuts on top of the salad.

I wonder if I could sub out the brown sugar for honey? I love salads, and this looks like a good one.
