Strawberry Spin Salad with Mission Valley Dressing

I love this dressing on Strawberry Spin Salad. Start with baby spinach and top with cored and quartered strawberries, feta cheese crumbles, and crushed walnuts. Drizzle with yummy mission valley salad dressing. Add some warm french bread on the side and you’re in heaven. This is also delicious if you sub the feta for blue cheese and add grilled chicken.

I love eating this during the week for lunch when I’m in SAHM mode. It makes me feel more sophisticated. I have an “I’m a grown up in a cafe” moment to myself.
