Spinach, Strawberry & Goat Cheese Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Sharing is caring!

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. 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.

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.
