Spinach Walnut Salad

Great side salad that you can adjust however you like.  I’ve used walnuts, hazelnuts, cranberries, goat cheese, feta, etc.  I do prefer that the oil used in the dressing go with the nuts, but you could play with that as well.

  • 1 bag spinach
  • Handful of feta or goat cheese
  • Handful chopped walnuts
  • Dried cranberries

Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
  • 3 tablespoons Walnut oil
  • salt and pepper

Combine vinegar, mustard, shallots, and salt and pepper.  Slowly add oil until well combined and creamy.  Toss dressing with spinach, cheese, and nuts.
