    AcadiaToo's Note:

    This is a colorful salad to impress your family and friends with your special taste for mixing the right foods to enhance a delicious combination of flavors. This recipe was created for the "Category Craze-E Contest! With the sub-category of Start with Salad at a Dinner Party! *NOTE: Now that the contest is over I have substituted blue berries for the peas which was one of the special must use ingredients, as suggested by Jen.

      Absolutely delicious and perfect for summer -- I made some minor changes by skipping the walnuts and adding blackberries and also the amounts of spinach and fruit (except for the pears) where probably off a tad. Thanks for sharing this keeper salad which we will be having again and again this summer!

      We loved the combination of the fruits and nuts with the spinach. The flavors compliment each other so well. I made the dressing to go on the salad however; no one in the family cared for it, so we did not add it to the salad. With all the other flavors it surly wasn't missed. And it was a beautiful addition to our Easter dinner. I will definitely be making this salad again next weekend, because my oldest DD requested it for the sleepover. Thanks for sharing this very tasty and healthy salad Debby. Made and reviewed for Spring PAC 2010
