I often include this recipe in our strawberry farm newsletter. I get so many compliments on this pretty mix of strawberries, lettuce and onion. The mayonnaise-based poppy seed dressing is actually nice and light.—Laurie Andrews, Milton, Ontario
I first tasted this delightful salad at a friend's house when she served it with dinner. It tastes so good made with fresh strawberries. After sampling it, no one would ever believe how incredibly easy it is to prepare.

"The color and sweetness fresh berries add to this lovely salad make it perfect for company," says Ruth Benning. When strawberries are out of season, this Hamburg, New York cook suggests using fresh orange sections instead.
This recipe was popular at a restaurant in Winston-Salem called Berry's. I love serving this salad to guests who comment that it is very pretty. Not only that, it is also a tasty and very nutritious dish!
This strawberry-spinach salad makes a wonderful light summer meal. The ingredients are an unusual combination, but all of the flavors and colors complement one another very nicely. Farmers here in Washington grow a lot of strawberries, and they're the sweetest ones I've ever tasted. I'm always looking for new and different ways to use them.
"This is my family's favorite springtime salad," relates Judi Francus of Morristown, New Jersey. "The dressing is so light and refreshing, and the vivid combination of red berries and green asparagus is a real eye-catcher."
