Strawberry, Feta & Spinach Salad with Candied Almonds

Recipe & Image Credit: Julia Kent @ The Domestic Blonde

Strawberry & Spinach salad is a summertime natural. This version adds feta cheese and provides a homemade balsamic vinaigrette


10 cups spinach
5 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds
¼ cup sugar
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup sugar


Heat a small frying pan and add sugar and almonds. Stirring constantly, watch the almonds closely until the sugar has started to melt and turn golden. When all sugar has melted and coated the almonds, remove them from the frying pan and let cool. If they stick together, break them up into pieces appropriate for a salad topping. Mix the dressing ingredients until the sugar as dissolved. Toss the spinach with the strawberries and feta. Drizzle dressing over top and sprinkle with almonds and serve.
