Strawberry Shortcake Salad

Spring into Spring with this delightful recipe that transforms the oldie, but goodie dessert (Strawberry Shortcake) into a bright, refreshingly new twist on traditional salad. While the springtime Strawberries and the Shortcake-Herbed Croutons give a pop of sweetness, the spicy arugula and toasted pine nuts give this salad an earthy-balance. With the creamy Gorgonzola, crispy pancetta, and the Strawberry Yogurt Dressing, this is a crowd pleaser at your next potluck and the perfect celebration of spring in a salad bowl! —Adrienne Vradenburg, Bakersfield, California
