  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
  • 1 medium orange, juiced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 5 oz clamshell of spring mix
  • 8 oz strawberries, sliced
  • 2 oz goat cheese crumbles
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Make your dressing: add vinegar, orange juice, honey and dijon to a jar. Mix with a fork until combined. Add olive oil and shake well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  2. Add spring mix and strawberries to large salad bowl. Toss with dressing per preference (you won’t need it all). Top with goat cheese and sliced almonds just before serving.



  • You likely won’t need all of the dressing so store any extra in the fridge for later use
  • Substitutes for champagne vinegar: balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • Avoid mixing in the goat cheese because it will likely clump together or coat the greens
