Fruity Spinach Salad

This is a perfect accompaniment to any meal. A tangy dressing turns strawberries, kiwifruit and blueberries into a delightful change-of-pace salad. Add more or less fruit depending on your family's tastes.—Anne Smithson, Cary, North Carolina

    We love this salad. People are always asking for this recipe when I make it for a get-together. If I don't have all the fruit on hand I just add what I have, good with just strawberries or just blueberries.

    This is a great salad; I make it often. The dressing is very tasty and so easy. It's a favorite of ours, including our 8 year old grandson. I often use other greens as well.
