Spinach and Fruit Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Mixed Fruit Spinach Salad

It’s the New Year and folks are setting goals and resolutions that involve better health.  I happen to be doing the same and eating healthier is one of them and eating boring diet food is something I really don’t want to do nor does it motivate me.  I like food with flavor so when the subject on salads come up,  I can’t help but share the ways I like to make them. I’ve found a way to enjoy them and in a variety of ways.  Today I am sharing with you one of my most favorite salad recipes.  ENJOY!!!

3 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. raw honey
1 Tbsp. finely chopped shallot
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
8 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup sliced and fresh blackberries, strawberries and nectarines

As you can see, there’s lots of flavor in this meal.  If you would like to add a little more protein to your meal, serve along side of a grilled chicken breast.  It’s a meal the whole family will love.
