We love to make this strawberry salad when there are plenty of fresh greens to pick. I serve it as a side salad, or make it an entree by topping it with chicken. —Sara Longworth, Worcester, Massachusetts
"Since I love potatoes and my husband and I both enjoy the flavor of tacos, this fun dish is a tasty meal-in-one for the two of us," comments Eleanor Mielke (left with her husband, Tom) of Mitchell, South Dakota. "It's not as messy as eating tacos...and the recipe can easily be doubled."
“My husband enjoyed this salad at a restaurant, so I went home and duplicated it,” recalls Joan Rockvam from Alexandria, Minnesota. “He tried it and said, ‘It’s better than theirs!’ So it’s been a keeper.”
MY Mother often fixed this salad when I was a child. I grew up on a farm and most of our food came right from the garden. We especially liked this in the spring, when early leaf lettuce appeared. After a long winter of cooked vegetables, this was a real treat.
