    I needed a quick salad to take to a church dinner. I had the strawberries, bacon and spinach, and found this online! It was a hit! My salad was devoured and people asked for the recipe. I didn't have onion, so used onion powder, and prefer coconut sugar. Pecans instead of walnuts. Very tasty and refreshing!

    Took this salad to a potluck and people loved it! I sliced the onion paper-thin so that those who weren't fond of onion could easily remove it. Next time I make this salad I am going to try it with fat free mayo and Spenda to make it a little healthier. I also think it would be delicious as a main course salad with sliced grilled chicken breast on top.

    I have served this several times and it is always a HIT! Blueberries work well in it and pecans rather than walnuts, too!

    My family absolutely loved this recipe. I had been looking for a strawberry spinach recipe for a couple of years and when I tried this one I knew I didn't have to search anymore. This is fabulous!

    SO good and SO easy. I used light mayo and added some bean sprouts that I had on hand. I couldn't find raspberry V so used red wine V.
