Spring has sprung! To celebrate the season we´re making a Spring Salad with Goat Cheese and Strawberries.

Remember to use a high-quality extra virgin olive oil, this is what really brings all the flavors together.
– Using Seasonal Produce –
You can make this salad all-year round, as the ingredients used can be found all year. However, when you use produce that is in-season, you add a new dimension of flavors. For this recipe I used fresh spinach and fresh strawberries, both of which are in-season during spring. Either way you slice it, this salad is amazing, but when you make it in peek-season, it´s absolutely incredible.
