This is from 500 Treasured Country Recipes. I have not tried it yet but it looks very interesting and I thought it would be a great addition to the strawberry recipe swap. I can't wait to see the results!

Very good salad but the dressing is out-of-this-world and would also be delish as a marinade for chicken. For the salad I skipped the watercress (couldn't find it), celery, green peppers and almonds but added a bit of dill havati cheese. Delish! and leftovers will be perfect for lunch with a bit of chicken or tuna mixed in. Thanks for sharing!
