I made this tonight and it was delicious!
Very refreshing salad.

Watermelon, Strawberry & Spinach Salad

For the Dressing:
3 cups strawberries
3 Tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
2 cups white balsamic vinegar

Pulse berries in food processor or blender, add sugar and vinegar. Let stand 1
hour in refrigerator, strain through a fine mesh sieve or colander and discard
solids.

Refrigerate. Keeps only about a week.

YIELDS: about 2 cups
SOURCE: Gourmet Weekly e-zine

For the Salad:
Watermelon
Strawberries
Baby spinach
Herbed Feta, crumbled

Wash and drain spinach to refresh it and place in a veggie bag or in a crisper
container.
Cut and seed watermelon and cut into cubes. Hull and slice strawberries – store
in refrigerater until ready to assemble salad.

Place spinach on salad or dinner sized plate
Add watermelon cubes and sliced strawberries
Sprinkle with crumbed herbed Feta
Drizzle with the strawberry vinegar dressing

YIELD: Depends on quantities
SOURCE: Inspired by similar recipes from Katrina Hall and
Gourmet Weekly e-zine

SONIA’S NOTES: I cut the dressing recipe by half as I didn’t think we would use
it all in one week.
I think chopped and toasted macadamia nuts would have been nice sprinkled on
top. In the Gourmet Weekly they used toasted pecans (if I remember correctly)
for the Spinach & Strawberry Salad – no watermelon or feta.
