Strawberry Spinach Salad Recipe

Les Frises Vinaigrette et Leurs Pousses Vertes

Step 1

Strawberries need not be confined to dessert, says Denis Pelletier, chef at Restaurant Le Mouilin de St. Laurent on Ile d'Orleans. The island is one of the province's lushest strawberry-growing areas. The chef suggests serving this colourful salad with a semi-soft cheese as St. Nectaire.

Step 2

Make a salad dressing by combining vinegar, oil and water. Add chopped shallots and pepper to taste. Arrange sliced strawberries in a spiral formation on the spinach and drizzle with the dressing.
