This salad is fantastic! I added a little more lemon zest because I like my dressings really lemony. I also used safflower oil instead of canola oil, and it was fine. Also, I put the dressing on about 3 hours before I plan to serve it, I think that once the spinach wilts a little bit the salad becomes even better & the flavors are more blended. The strawberries retain their flavor and the cucumbers remain crisp. Yum yum, will definitely make this many times this summer.
I have made this weekly since trying the recipe for the first time. It is requested often! The dressing is my favorite part! I followed the directions exactly and have added feta a couple times if I had it. Thank you for posting this recipe!
Y U M !!! I've had this type of salad before, but with a store bought dressing. This dressing was over the top amazing! I will definitely make this again. (I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup, and think I might reduce it again next time around) Red onion was the only ingredient I didn't have on hand so I substituted celery for it and it turned out wonderfully.
unbelievably wonderful combination of flavors and so light and fresh tasting--a winner
I love this salad and had lost my copy ~ thank you for posting it! I do make one change that makes a delicious fruited vinaigrette that I store in my fridge~ I simply add the strawberries to the dressing. That way I can throw together a great salad in a jiffy :) Thanks again
This was a very interesting salad. The dressing was sweet with a zesty, biting aftertaste, well balanced by the strawberries and almonds, but I'm a bit of a stickler for my favorite Greek salad and wasn't too impressed by this one. I think the dressing would be fantastic in a fruit salad and will probably give that a try in the future.
The dressing for this recipe is very interesting. Local groceries no longer carry raspberry vinegar, so I've been looking for a dressing that is sweet and light but that doesn't use that ingredient. This is it, but next time I'll halve the sugar.
