Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 bag baby spinach
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup crumbled LF feta or goat cheese
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
3 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP chopped fresh basil
Salt & pepper to taste

Whisk vinegar and olive oil in small bowl. Add basil and season with salt and pepper. Gently toss with salad. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

This is delicious and a very pretty salad, too. I like to serve it with grilled chicken or salmon.

I've been eating various versions of this since I had a similar combination at a dinner party a few years ago. I LOVE it. Never get tired of it. I also love it with Brianna's Blush Wine Vinaigrette dressing and gorgonzola cheese. Sometimes red onions and walnuts, instead of the pinenuts. Yummy!
