Default Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is super easy even with the homemade dressing and is so light and fresh.

Disclaimer: Unless I'm baking or making jelly, I don't measure anything, so these are approximate amounts.

Strawberry Spinach Salad

8-10 cups of fresh spinach, rinsed and stems removed
1 quart strawberries, rinse and slice
1 small vidalia onion, slice in very thin rings
1 cup honey roasted almonds, or candied
couple handfulls of shredded parmesan or asiago cheese

1/2 cup plain yogurt, or vanilla works too
grated zest of 1 small orange
juice of 1 small orange
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. balsamic vinager
1 tsp. spicy mustard, I use one with horseradish
1 tsp. ginger paste

1: put all dressing ingredients in bowl and whisk until blended adding more yogurt as needed for thickness. store in fridg until ready to serve.

2: toss all salad ingredients in large bowl and toss with dressing right before serving.

Even with the ginger and horseradish, the dressing just has the teeniest kick becausse of all the orange.
