My mom gave me this recipe. I make it often when strawberries are in season. The combination of greens and fruit surprises people. The clincher is the dressing - a hit every time I prepare it.

"My family asks me to make this spring salad every Easter....this year is year #3. So yummy! I don't like poppy seeds or pecans, so I use sunflower seeds for the crunch."
