Strawberry Spinach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

I used to be completely against both fruit and nuts in my salad, recently I opened my eyes to the endless combinations and my taste buds are extremely happy! This salad dressing is so good the sweet and tangy flavors compliment each other perfectly.  Make sure you try this SOON!
