Strawberry Spinach Salad w/ Orange Raspberry Vinaigrette

Source: Me and Whole Foods Market

The salad itself is tasty, but it is the dressing that makes it even better.  Whole Foods wouldn’t give me the quantities, only the ingredients so here is what I came up with.

INGREDIENTS
Salad: (Serves 4)
1/2 pound baby spinach
1 cup strawberries, thinly sliced
2 ounces feta, crumbled

Vinaigrette: (Makes about 1 cup)
1/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
(The Whole Foods Market dressing has olive oil and chives in it, both of which I left out, but might add next time.)

DIRECTIONS
Salad: Toss all ingredients in bowl.

Vinaigrette: Mix all ingredients in container with a tight-fitting lid; shake well to combine. Drizzle over salad.
