***Salad:8 ozs. baby spinach
1 cup strawberries, sliced
½ cup glazed pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons organic cacao nibs
2 ozs. parmigiano-reggiano cheese, shaved
***Vinaigrette: (Yields about 1/3 cup (best served cold)2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon finely chopped organic crystallized ginger
pinch of organic fine Pink Himalayan salt
pinch of organic white pepper
pinch of organic dried basil
pinch of organic dried oregano
¼ cup organic extra virgin olive oil
In a glass pint jar (with a lid and ring), add all the vinaigrette ingredients. Place lid and ring on top of jar and tightly secure, then vigorously shake for 1 minute, and place jar in refrigerator for 30 minutes for flavors to meld.
Once vinaigrette flavors meld, toss the spinach with the sliced strawberries, and a light drizzle of vinaigrette (do not over-dress please), then distribute equally amongst 4 salad plates; topping each with parmesan reggiano cheese shavings, glazed pecans, and cacao nibs. - Enjoy!
Tip: When storing remaining jarred vinaigrette in the refrigerator, shake well before using later on.
