Ruth Haywood’s colorful Strawberry-Bacon Spinach Salad is sweet and crunchy with a tangy dressing. “I made this recipe for our prayer group, and everyone enjoyed it,” Ruth writes from Lake Charles, Louisiana.
From Caldwell, Idaho, Ginger Ellsworth sends this pretty spinach salad topped with grilled chicken, strawberries and almonds in a sweet poppy-seed dressing. Made in moments, it’s a refreshing lunch or light supper for two.
This light, refreshing salad from the CW Test Kitchen is the perfect antidote to heavy holiday meals. It's also a show-stopper, visually and nutritionally, with fresh strawberries and yellow pepper strips tossed with fresh baby spinach. The recipe is also a good use for turkey leftovers. Serve with warm whole wheat rolls or flax or bran muffins.
This colorful salad is a favorite with Gladys Nelson’s diabetic husband in Jefferson, Wisconsin. It’s filled with nutritious fruits, topped with heart-healthy nuts and laced with a light-purple yogurt dressing.
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.
My mom gave me this recipe. I make it often when strawberries are in season. The combination of green and fruit surprises people. The clincher is the dressing—a hit every time I prepare it.—Pat Brune, Ridgecrest, California
