A lovely vinaigrette coats this green salad that’s tossed with tomatoes, olives and marinated cream cheese ‘croutons.’ I freeze the cream cheese for 45 minutes or so to firm it up. This makes it easier to cut into cubes. —Barbara Estabrook, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
This special salad is lightly coated in a refreshing citrus dressing. I sometimes serve it with a side of cottage cheese…the taste of orange and all the cheeses will have your friends and family begging for more. —Jamie Pearson, Woodbury, Minnesota
“A big bowl of this salad accompanies me to potlucks and reunions. The dark greens and red strawberries look pretty together-plus, the sweet dressing and nuts make everyone spinach fans.” —Maxine Culp, Fitchburg, Wisconsin
Mom invented this colorful salad by combining romaine lettuce with toasted pecans, chicken strips, grapes, dried cranberries and cheddar cheese. I think she's particularly proud of this recipe.
