I think I’ve finally done it. I’ve perfected the simplest honey balsamic vinaigrette. Sure, there are other ingredients you could add to make it more complex, more intricate. But this dressing hits a note of sweet beautiful balsamic that seems just right.
And then there’s this stunning spinach salad to accompany it. Pomegranate arils make the dark green spinach pop and contrast with the creamy white feta, purple-red onions, and rustic brown walnuts. I promise it’s as pleasing to eat as it is to look at.
