Spinach, Strawberry & Goat Cheese Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

I figured it would be wise to stick with strawberries since my last strawberry recipe – Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries – seemed to make a lot of people very happy Smile This time I went a more healthy route. I was craving salad so I decided to make myself a drool worthy (yes, salad can be drool worthy) Spring time salad.  What’s more delicious then crisp baby spinach, sweet strawberries, crumbly goat cheese, toasted almonds and tart pomegranate vinaigrette? The answer is nothing. Well, except this salad Smile

The pomegranate vinaigrette was made by combining POM Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, olive oil, champagne vinegar, and salt and pepper.  The pomegranate juice concentrate brings a nice fruity flavor  to the vinaigrette that works wonderfully with the sweet strawberries in the salad.



Spinach, Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salad


For Salad:
1 pound baby spinach – washed and dried
1/2 pound strawberries – tops removed and sliced
Handful of almonds – toasted
1/4 – 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

For Vinaigrette:
2 equal parts POM Pomegranate Juice Concentrate
1 equal part olive oil
1 equal part champagne vinegar
Fresh cracked pepper – to taste
Kosher salt – pinch

Source: Nutmeg Nanny


For Salad:
Wash and dry spinach and put in large bowl. Add strawberries, almonds and goat cheese. Add pomegranate vinaigrette and toss.

For Vinaigrette:

Whisk ingredients together and pour over salad. Can also be stored in the refrigerator until ready to be used.

    Your waffles look delicious. I just went strawberry picking and am looking for a way to eat them up. Our grocery just starting stocking Yulu yogurt so I may have to get cooking.

    I’ve not heard of Yulu yogurt, but maybe it hasn’t reached Maine yet. Anyway, I had not thought of adding yogurt to waffles and it sounds like a good sub for buttermilk! Your pictures are great!

    I often have the same problem with fresh picked fruit, it seems to go bad a lot faster, makes you wonder what they’re spraying the other stuff with. These waffles look like weekend brunch perfection! Love that you used Yulu yogurt in them!

    This is the perfect weekend brunch treat! The yogurt makes these waffles so moist and luscious!

    Ok, I am totally making these tomorrow. If I don’t have vanilla bean pasta can I just use regular extract?

    • nutmegnanny replied: — June 19th, 2015 @ 8:42 pm

      Hi Krista! Yes, vanilla extract will be fine. I only use the vanilla bean paste because I love the little flecks of vanilla bean 🙂

    Wow, what gorgeous photos. I just got done swimming at the pool with the kiddos and am completely famished . I swear, you could hear my stomach growling in the other room when I saw that first picture of these waffles. They look divine!

    Stacey @ Bake.Eat.Repeat. — June 19, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    I can’t get enough of fresh strawberries this time of year either, they’re just so good! Definitely need to try them in some waffles, that’s a fantastic idea!

    OK, first off that first photo is stunning. Love all of the negative space! So gorgeous. I’m obsessed with berries right now too. It’s a little ridiculous. ItI feel like Violet from Willy Wonka or someing. That doesn’t stop me from wanting to dive headfirst into a plate of these waffles though.

    You just made me hungry! These waffles look amazing! I know you shouldn’t wash strawberries until right before you use them. They go fast after you clean them. Not sure if you washed them or not but just thought I’d say. 🙂

    You know whats funny? I am not much of a waffle lover but this big puffy waffles are totally calling my name! The honey greek yogurt is a game changer as most waffles don’t taste like much but those strawberries and honey…heaven!
