This is a light, refreshing salad. Perfect for lunch or to start off a meal. This is a scaled down version of the salad that will be served at our daughter's wedding. The caterer was generous enough to provide us with the recipe. Note: Cooking time is chilling time for the dressing.
Spinach and strawberries what an odd combination for a recipe. That is what I thought before trying this the first time. Now I get many requests to bring this for dinner parties. The raspberry wine vinegar adds a marvelous taste, and compliments the first two ingredients. This salad is very eye pleasing in crystal.
Easy pasta salad using surimi (imitation) crab, pasta and poppy seed dressing. Pasta shells or gemelli will work, but rotelli is easy to pick up with the crab and I like the colorful pasta. If you only have a sweet poppy seed dressing, add some red wine vinegar or lime juice to give it some tartness.
This recipe has been in my family since I can remember. Rumor has it it was my grandma's (Dad's mom) recipe but Grandma (Mom's mom) says it is her recipe. The thing is it is absolutely delicious! I make it all year round but this is my signature thanksgiving side dish. Goes well with my puertorican apple BBQ turkey.
