Spinach Strawberry Champagne Salad

Spinach Strawberry Champagne Salad

I have partnered with my favorite bloggers to bring you an Easy Valentine’s Day Dinner. We have created a a super easy four course gourmet meal so you can enjoy an evening at home without a lot of work!

For my part of the dinner, I made a delicious Spinach Strawberry Champagne Salad.  It has fresh baby spinach, fresh sliced strawberries, crumbled blue cheese, and chopped walnuts.  You could use candied walnuts as well. To make the salad extra special, I use the Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar from Trader Joe’s in the vinaigrette.  It adds a wonderful sophisticated flavor for this special occasion.
