Strawberry Spinach Salad

Yes, folks.  I am {gasp} dieting.  So, as much as I love to blog about baked goods and ice cream, you'll be seeing some lighter fare around here for the foreseeable future.

This post is more a list of ingredients rather than an actual recipe.  Feel free to omit or substitute anything and mess with the proportions of ingredients as you see fit.  But I'm telling you, the combination of flavors below is just awesome, so give it a chance please!

You'll need:

Mixed baby greens (or whatever other greens you'd like; optional)
Basil, cut into ribbons
Strawberries, sliced
Cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
Slivered almonds
Feta cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt, to taste

Combine spinach through feta cheese in a bowl.  Drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic over.  Sprinkle with a little salt.  Toss it all together and go to town.

Yum.  Seriously.  This is so good, in fact, that I'm eating one of these as I type.  Enjoy!
