    Normaone's Note:

    I found the original recipe on Allrecipes.com, although I tweeked it a bit. The balsamic really adds alot of flavor to this salad and the almonds give it a nice crunch. You could toss in some cooked chicken and call it dinner real easy.

      I absolutely loved this spinach & strawberry salad. The dressing is so nice and thick, just perfect. YUM! I forgot to mention that I didn't add the poppy seeds or the almonds.

      I also used Splenda for the sugar. The vinaigrette is amazing. This is a wonderful spring time salad and makes an attractive presentation.
