Ingredients
  

  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 cup candied pecans
  • 1 quart strawberries rinsed, dried, and halved or quartered, stems removed
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries rinsed
  • 2 avocados diced
  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbled
  • ½ cup vinaigrette more or less to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a large salad bowl toss together the spinach, candied pecans, strawberries, and blueberries. Add the avocado and cheese.
    Pro Tip: To make your own candied pecans, combine 1 cup of pecans, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar in a skillet. Heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved in the butter. Spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake at 350°F until pecans are crisp.
  • Pour the salad dressing over ingredients and toss gently to combine. Adjust the dressing to taste.
    Pro Tip: If you are making a homemade vinaigrette dressing and plan to make this recipe often, you can make a larger batch and refrigerate it for up to 2 weeks.
  • Serve immediately.
