Sweet And Savory Vinaigrette 

  • In a small bowl or a jar with a lid, add the balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard.

  • Finely mince the garlic cloves and add them to the bowl.

  • Drizzle in the honey (or maple syrup for a vegan version) to balance the acidity of the vinegar. You can adjust the sweetness to your taste.

  • Slowly pour in the extra-virgin olive oil while whisking the mixture vigorously. If you're using a jar, you can simply shake it well to combine the ingredients thoroughly.

  • Continue to whisk (or shake) until the dressing is well emulsified, meaning that the oil and vinegar have combined into a smooth mixture.

  • Season the vinaigrette with salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Taste the vinaigrette and adjust the balance of sweetness, acidity, and seasonings as needed. You can add a bit more honey, vinegar, or salt, depending on your taste.

  • Once you're satisfied with the flavor, your balsamic vinaigrette is ready to drizzle over your salad.

To store the Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta (including cherry tomatoes) and keep it fresh for later consumption, follow these steps:


  • Store the salad in an airtight container or a sealable plastic bag to prevent air from reaching the salad. Make sure the container is clean and dry.

Keep Dressing Separate:

  • If possible, store the dressing separately from the salad. This helps prevent the salad from becoming soggy.


  • Refrigerate the salad as soon as possible, ideally within two hours of preparation. Store it at a temperature of 35-40°F (1-4°C).

Seal Properly:

  • Ensure the container or bag is properly sealed to maintain freshness and prevent odors from the refrigerator from affecting the salad.


  • If you must store the salad with the dressing, consider layering the ingredients. Place the heartier and less absorbent ingredients (like the spinach, strawberries, cherry tomatoes) at the bottom and the more delicate items (like the feta) at the top.

Use within 2-3 Days:

  • Consume the salad within 2-3 days to ensure it stays fresh and safe to eat. The salad may become less crisp over time.

Toss Before Serving:

  • Before serving, give the salad a gentle toss to redistribute the dressing and ensure an even coating.

Remember that the salad may not be as crisp after refrigeration, especially if it has been dressed in advance. By keeping the dressing separate and following these storage guidelines, you can help maintain the salad's texture and flavor when you're ready to enjoy it.
