Place the shallot, red wine vinegar, pepper, salt, basil and mayonnaise together in a food processor or blender. With the blender or food processor running, slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream until the dressing is emulsified.
To complete the Strawberry Spinach Salad with Almonds:
Toss the kale with the basil vinaigrette. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, or until the kale begins to become tender.
Divide the salad into 6 servings and top with berries, almonds and sliced basil. Enjoy!
