This is a wonderfully tasty salad and a nice light treat after so many heavy holiday meals. I did add some crispy crumbled bacon just to make it a more complete lunch. Great tip, Charolette, to wash and hull the berries right before using. Strawberries should only be washed when ready to use to prolong their freshness.
A very nice brightly colored salad. Went well with #60167 Fettuccine Jardiniere by Susie in Texas. I also added a little more balsamic vinegar to the dressing. Thanks Charlotte J.
My family had this for dinner. Not served with anything, just a nice big delicious salad for a summer dinner. Very good.
