This is a perfect salad for potlucks and other occasions year-round. In winter, the ingredients are available when many other vegetables aren’t in season…and in summer, it’s a worry-free picnic food since it doesn’t have a mayonnaise-based dressing.
“I invented this recipe while watching a movie set on the Greek islands. I like the combination of warm grilled steak and sauteed mushrooms with cold salad ingredients.” —Chris Wells, Lake Villa, Illinois
This recipe combines power-packed spinach, a good source of vitamins A and K, with other veggies, lean meat and crunchy, heart-healthy almonds. Reduced-fat dressing adds a light Asian flavor and touch to each hearty serving.

“This salad offers the best that summer produce has to offer, and it looks so beautiful layered in a glass bowl. It’s almost too pretty to dig into…almost! And
it’s perfect for potlucks.” —Jodi Anderson, Overbrook, Kansas
