Rustic Balsamic Garden Salad


Our balsamic vinaigrette enhances the components of this dish with only a splash. Deep green colored spinach topped with bright berries and nutty almonds are not only an eye pleasing combination but a delicious one. We opted for the baby spinach variety with tender, smooth leaves for its mild flavor and delicate leaves. It makes for an excellent salad base. The flavors of this salad shines with the tart pear slices countering the sweet balsamic vinegar in our vinaigrette.
