Geez, it seems like I post only recipes these days! But I keep running across all these winners, and just have to share. I give - I'm a giver.
The recipe I'm sharing today was triggered by my husband. I tweeted about it:
And when it showed up in my Facebook status, the requests for the recipe came flooding in. (Okay, not FLOODING - but at least three people asked. THREE.)
One of my close personal friend's served this at a recent girlfriends-scrapbook retreat, and we all completely swooned over it. I don't know that I've ever swooned over a salad, but this one is really good. Tangy, and creamy, and crunchy, and just so fresh tasting. My husband requested it to serve to his friends at a LAN (local area network - computer gaming) party, so you know it's passed the most rigorous taste test around.
My friend got the recipe from another scrapbooking friend, but it wasn't so much of a recipe, as a list of ingredients:
Spinach salad mix
Ranch flavor sliced almonds
Homestyle blush wine Viniagrette dressing by Brianna's (has strawberry on label)
Basically you just mix everything together "to taste".
Fortunately, I found a 'real' recipe that looks like it should create the same result.
Strawberry and Feta Salad (aka Strawberry Almond Awesome Salad thing)
- 16oz package Spring Mix (I use Earthbound Farms Organic Spring Mix)
- 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup Almond Accents, Ranch style
- 1/2 cup Brianna's Homestyle Blush Wine Vinaigrette Dressing
In a large bowl, mix the greens, strawberries, feta cheese, and almonds. Toss with the vinaigrette salad dressing to serve.
