"The recipe for this beautiful blend came from a local berry farm some years ago," notes Linda Jo Wahlgren of Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. "We like to take the sweet and savory salad on picnics to accompany cold chicken and a loaf of crusty bread."

  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin orange, drained
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced into rings
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
