A light salad that looks so good it MAKES you want to eat it.

Top Review by Bitsie

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.
