Light Strawberry-Spinach Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
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.
