BABY SPINACH SALAD WITH BLUEBERRY AND LIME VINAIGRETTE

Quick-Fix Southern
by Rebecca Lang

The combination of sweet strawberries, salty feta cheese, and the tart dressing makes an incredible salad. I like to serve salads on platters to show off the beautiful colors. Blueberries naturally contain pectin, so the dressing will become thick if it sits for a while. If you need to, whisk in a little more olive oil to thin it out.
Serves 6


INGREDIENTS

    · 1 (6-ounce) package baby spinach
    · 1 cup sliced strawberries
    · 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
    · 1 cup fresh blueberries
    · 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
    · Zest of 1 lime
    · 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
    · 1 tablespoon honey
    · 2/3 cup olive oil


DIRECTIONS

Arrange the spinach on a serving platter. Top with the strawberries and feta cheese.

For the dressing, place the blueberries, vinegar, lime zest and juice, and honey in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade.

Process until the blueberries are pureed, about 1 minute.

With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream.

Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve.
