    My mom got this recipe from a friend, and it has quickly become a family favorite. Delicious!

    Recipe #61591

    UPDATED -- Please note: The nutritional information (fat and calories) on this salad for each serving is incorrect because it was calculated using all the salad dressing for 4-6 servings of the salad. The recipe makes lots of extra dressing. This salad is wonderful! My husband and I came up with the ingredients for the salad itself to go along with a delicious maple dressing from the book "What's cooking America". All the flavors of the different ingredients blend and coalesce into the most mellow, nutty sweet flavor, that is very autumnal and heavenly! And very nutritious too. You really need all the ingreds. to achieve the wonderful flavor. Make sure you toast the pecans, as the toasting really brings out the flavor, and let the jicama matchsticks sit in the ice water a bit to really intensify their crunchy sweetness.Make sure all the ingredients are very fresh. (I buy prewashed/packaged baby spinach to speed things up and dispense with the rinsing and drying). Vary salad ingredient amounts to taste (we never measure). I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

    My best friend is on a low-carb diet. I made this for her birthday dinner and everyone (including the kids) loved it. Very easy to do.

    This is a wonderful and simple salad. We love it. The dressing is great.

    Recipe #67395

    I really enjoy this salad; I think it has a lovely balance of sweetness and bitterness, softness and crunch - and the colours are lovely too. This will make four side salads, or two meal salads.

    This recipe only take a couple of minutes to cook - You just want to wilt the spinach - the cinnamon orange gives a nice flavor to the spinach. You do not need a dressing - serve this as a side dish or a salad

    Recipe #99470

    This recipe is super good for you and tastes great too! I use the left over steaming water for miso soup.

    Recipe #103204

    This is on my menu for Thanksgiving. I have made this before and it is so wonderfully delicate in flavor--perfect warm up to a larger meal, and perfect Fall recipe from Cooking Light.

    Recipe #104680

    My friend Mary Greenwood first introduced me to this fine summer treat. Ingredients can vary according to what you have in your garden.

    Recipe #126087

    This meal sized salad has a BEAUTIFUL presentation. Egg and cottage cheese provide protein, while the lettuce and many vegetables create a light, yet filling, meal. The amounts of lettuce and vegetables is an estimate. Just use as much as you want. Also, use the vegetables you prefer.

    Recipe #131888

    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.

    This salad is so attractive sitting by each place. You can vary the filling to suit your taste - make it hotter, add a dressing, salt & pepper it etc.

    Try this fresh summer salad from Gourmet. Would be great to serve at your next cookout!

    Recipe #65417

    This is a refreshingly different and easy salad that I have made many times. It comes from an old cookbook of mine entitled "The Complete Encyclopedia of Chinese Cooking.

    Recipe #84134

    A very inexpensive salad. Dandelion leaves, flowers, and roots are all edible if you have an organic yard or store buy! Dandelion is a bitter green. The cheese helps smooth out the bitterness, the honey gives it sweetness and receives saltiness from the bacon, cheese and olives giving this salad an all round full flavor for your taste buds.hese greens are nutritious—-high in vitamin A, vitamin C and iron. Also low in calories, fat and cholesterol. As with any green, the younger the plant, the more tender it is. For the safest crop, be sure to pick greens well away from major roads or other chemically treated areas, and wash the greens well before you use them. And they are free! Amount: 3 1/2 ounces. Calories: 33. Fat: 0.6 grams. Protein: 2 grams. Vit. A: 12,168 (IU). Vit. C: 18 milligrams. Iron: 1.8 milligrams

    This is a zesty and sweet dressing topped on a refreshing salad.Great for those hot summer days.

    Recipe #91539

    Wow, this has replaced my favourite Caesar Salad for popularity when people ask me to bring salad. It is really tasty. I have about 8 people to Sunday dinner each week and when I make this I have to double it and it all goes. When you double the salad ingredients you do not have to double the dressing. Just toss more.

    Recipe #37812

    This is fantastic. I've been trying to eat more healthily and so I have been trying to give up olive oil. Not easy. And I *know* it's a good fat, but I don't need ANY fat right now! So the inclusion of tofu in the dressing makes this taste more "sinful" than it really is.
