Ingredients You'll Need

Optional: 2 to 3 ounces crumbled goat cheese (or blue cheese)


1.Toss the spinach with the sliced strawberries, pecans, and cheese, if using. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

2.Put the balsamic vinegar, sugar, tarragon, onion and garlic powder, and mustard in a blender. With the blender running, add the vegetable oil in a slow, steady stream. Alternatively, put the dressing ingredients in a jar, cover with a lid, and shake to blend. Taste and adjust seasonings.
