Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette


1 1/2 cup quarted strawberries
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 c. thin sliced peeled peaches or nectarines
1 can mandarin oranges (rinsed)
2 tbsp slivered almonds toasted
10 oz. packaged fresh spinach, torn (or packages Spring Mix, depending on what's available)

1. Place 1 cup strawberries, vinegar, brown sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper in blender, process until smooth. This is the salad dressing.

2. In large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. This is the salad.

This was my go-to recipe for summer time pot-luck parties when I was working at the doctor's office. This is one of my favorite salads, and my kids love it!!
