  • Summary

    Spinach and strawberry salad had its moment in the '80s, but this version will surprise you with its refinement. The salad is not sweet, just aromatic — and coming across fresh berries every now and then provides bursts of fruitiness. The pecans are simply toasted, but once they're coated with vinaigrette, you'd swear they were candied. Raspberries would work well here, too.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 tablespoons strawberry vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 5 ounces baby spinach (8 cups)
    • 1/2 pound strawberries, cut lengthwise into thick slices (1 1/2 cups)
    • 1/2 cup pecan halves (3 1/2 ounces), toasted and cooled
