Tips for making Strawberry Spinach Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Here are my top tips for making the best strawberry spinach salad ever:

  1. When preparing the dressing, shake the ingredients together in a jar rather than whisking them in a bowl. The vinaigrette will combine much more easily that way.
  2. If you are making this salad in advance for a get-together, do not add the dressing until you are ready to serve. This will prevent the salad from becoming soggy.
