Every Monday during the month of May I'm sharing my favorite salads, most are easy to pack for work lunch and they all highlight ingredients local to WNC.
Using strawberries in salads during the summer is very common at our house. This year, we're enjoying our first CSA and using ingredients in new ways helps you use up all we get each week without waste.
Combine the following for a simple tossed salad:
Spinach (locally available as early as spring)
Strawberries (begin fruiting in May in WNC)
Goat cheese (again, gotta love Three Graces Dairy!)
Chopped pecans (plenty of NC pecan growers if you don't already have some in your pantry leftover from fall pie making!)
Your favorite balsamic dressing
