Cherry Balsamic Spinach Salad


I love cherries! I am so happy it's cherry season now, even though they're still a bit pricey. I love cranberry balsamic dressing, so I figured cherry would be a great substitute. This salad was simple and very delicious!


Cherry Balsamic Spinach Salad


4 cups baby spinach leaves
15 cherries, 10 halved
1/4 c . walnuts, toasted
1/4 red onion, sliced


dressing:
1/4 c. aged balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. EVOO
5 cherries
1/2 tsp. fresh oregano
salt and pepper


Add dressing ingredients to a blender and blend for 30 seconds until well incorporated.
Arrange salad, pour dressing over.
