Looking for a simple, DELICIOUS salad to make?
I guarantee your family and friends will LOVE it.
I get asked for this recipe ALL the time and it's one of my "signature" dishes that I make year round.
Enjoy and let me know if you make it! 

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

1/2 cup red currant jelly
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
6 cups fresh baby spinach
2 pints fresh strawberries, quartered
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted ( I also like walnuts or pecans)

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries, oranges, onion and blue cheese. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
