Strawberry Spinach Salad with Molasses Vinaigrette

Spinach and strawberry salad with molasses vinaigrette

I decided it’s time I tried to learn more from my kids. With that mindset, I discovered that you can rush the summer feeling, even if you can’t hurry summer. So what if local, field-ripened strawberries won’t be around until late June. Why wait? It’ll be even better with juicy local berries and tender spinach from the farmer’s market. But in the meantime, eating this salad gave me the delicious hint of summer I was craving.
