Strawberry Romaine Salad

"I love to entertain and cook for family and friends when they drop in," remarks Ileen Adkins of Randle, Washington. "When strawberries are in season, I serve this salad often. But because of its unusual combination of onion and berries, I sometimes have to encourage guests to try it. Once they do, they always come back for more."

    This was a very tasty salad. I particularly liked the dressing. I used walnuts instead of almond and they were great.

    This is a crowd pleaser! I use green onion instead of red rings because it is always on hand. I make this often and everyone raves about how good it is!
