SPINACH SALAD WITH STRAWBERRIES, GRAPES, AVOCADO, GREEN ONIONS, AND NUTS WITH MARVELOUS STINKY CHEESE DRESSING
4 to 6 servings
If using salad dressing, prepare and allow flavors to blend for at least 1 hour. Prepare spinach or other salad greens, grapes, mushrooms, green onions, and parsley for salad; place in a deep salad bowl or individual salad bowls. Lightly sprinkle salad(s) with salt. Spoon desired amount of salad dressing over salad(s). Or, drizzle desired amount of balsamic and/or red wine vinegar(s) and olive oil over salad(s) (use vinegar and oil sparingly so that salad(s) does/do not become soggy). Sprinkle additional crumbled cheese of choice and nuts of choice for garnish over salad(s). Serve immediately.
Note: Use baby (small light green variety) spinach as whole leaves, stems removed. Tear the curly variety spinach into bite-size pieces.
