Spinach 'n Berries Salad

4 cups baby spinach
3/4 cup berries *
1/3 cup slivered almonds or walnuts - toasted
1 tblsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
3 tblsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

*Any combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries

Place spinach berries and nuts in a large bowl.  Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, mustard and honey in a small bowl.  Pour dressing over salad and toss.  Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Note:  to toast your own almonds or walnuts simply place them in a skillet or saute pan (do not add oil) and cook over low heat tossing continuously until you start to smell a "nutty" scent.  Nuts can also be spread on a baking sheet and "toasted" in the oven at 350  for 10 minutes.
