Reviews for Strawberry-Orange Spinach Salad with Toasted Walnuts
"Love it!! Have taken it to many occasions and all have enjoyed it."
"This was delicious! I used what I had on hand, so tangelos for oranges, honey mustard for Dijon, and pecans and almonds for walnuts. Also used only 1/4 tsp (white) pepper. The dressing was still delicious and my husband said he would like it again, even though I was afraid he'd think it was something to serve at only a women's luncheon! A keeper of a recipe."
"I took this to a luncheon and the ladies loved it! The dressing is light and refreshing. Definitely a crowd pleaser!"
