Strawberry Spinach Salad with Warm Brown Butter Dressing

This simple salad of baby spinach, sliced strawberries, toasted nuts and feta cheese is fresh, flavorful, and perfect for summer. Plus, the warm brown butter dressing is a wonderful surprise!



  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped rosemary
  • Pinch of salt


  • 4 cups loosely packed baby spinach
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese


  • Melt butter in a small saucepan set over medium low heat. Continue to cook butter, stirring frequently, until butter turns golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in balsamic vinegar, honey, rosemary and salt. Cool slightly.
  • To assemble the salad, toss the baby spinach, strawberries, nuts, feta cheese, and warm dressing in a large bowl. Serve immediately.
  • If dressing cools and hardens, rewarm in a microwave in 10 second bursts.
