Description

Fresh figs, strawberries, goat cheese, and spinach salad with simple homemade vinaigrette dressing. I used figs picked from our grandmother’s fig tree.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches Fresh Spinach
  • 8 whole Strawberries
  • 12 whole Figs
  • 4 ounces, weight Goat Cheese
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • ⅛ cups Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Raw Honey
  • ⅛ cups Lemon Juice
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Parsley

Preparation

Wash spinach, strawberries, and figs. Cut figs and strawberries and remove stems and/or leaves. Toss spinach, strawberries, goat cheese, and figs.

Combine olive oil and vinegar, and whisk in honey, then add lemon and salt. Whisk until honey is well combined (or almost seems to dissolve). Add basil and parsley and whisk again. Let it sit a minute, taste, and adjust seasonings. Depending on the quality of the oil, strength of the vinegar, and your family’s taste, you may choose to adjust the portions (it’s common for vinaigrettes to have an oil to vinegar ration of 2 to 1).

Drizzle dressing over salad and serve.
