Spinach, Strawberry & Pine Nuts Salad Recipe

Spinach, Strawberry & Pine Nuts Salad is a recipe that I created to go with my Strawberry Jalapeño Glazed Chicken. It was absolutely delicious. It is dressed with a super easy vinaigrette that adds a pop of flavor that will tantalize your taste buds.

With Strawberry-Jalapeño Vinaigrette

 

This past weekend we had out-of-state family come for a visit, and that meant a large family gathering. Of course, great food is always a part of any get-together. I was in charge of cookies and a salad.

Luke, Rory, and I had really enjoyed this salad a couple weeks ago, when we had it with our Strawberry Jalapeño Glazed Chicken, so I thought I would share it with the fam. It makes a wonderful summer salad, and it was perfect for Luke’s vegetarian sister-in-law.

 

Spinach, Strawberry & Pine Nuts Salad

Here’s What You Need:

Fresh Spinach,  Strawberries, Pine Nuts, Parmesan Cheese, Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry-Jalapeño Fruit Spread, White Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper.

For the Salad:

In a small pan, heat Olive Oil over medium heat. Add Salt, Pepper, and Pine Nuts. Saute until Pine Nuts are toasted. Keep watch, as this does not take very long. Set aside to cool.

Remove  Strawberry leaves and/or stems. Chop into bite-sized pieces.

In a large bowl, combine Spinach, strawberries, pine nuts. Grate Parmesan Cheese over the top. Dress with Strawberry-Jalapeño Vinaigrette and toss.

For the Vinaigrette:

In a glass jar with a lid, add 1-part Strawberry-Jalapeño Fruit Spread and 1-part White Balsamic Vinegar. Place lid on jar and shake well. NOTE: For the 3 of us we used 1/4 cup fruit spread, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and we had a little leftover vinaigrette).

  1. I LOVE spinach salad with strawberries and pine nuts. I’ll have to make your salad and the vinaigrette. What a great summer salad – perfect for these hot, hot days of August. I need to make a run to the grocery store and get the ingredients to make this soon.

    P.S. Happy Birthday!!

  2. I love spinach salads and have a version sort of like this – I use pecans or almonds instead. I don’t think I have ever bought pine nuts. Will have to add it to my pantry.

  3. We love this combination of ingredients in a salad. We were just discussing how we are due to have a good salad! Now I’m really craving one! It’s nice to have those family visits over good food, isn’t it!

  4. I love strawberry and spinach salads, this sounds like such a delicious recipe. I’ll have to give it a try soon. Thanks for being such an awesome party host! #HomeMattersParty

  5. I made a salad similar to this one but instead of pine nuts I used slivered almonds and added avocados. Yummy. Thanks for another alternative to plain salad. Love hosting #homemattersparty with you.

  6. That looks beautiful AND delicious! I keep forgetting to get some of that Smuckers strawberry jalapeno spread. I know I will love it! Need to put it on the list!
