1/1 Photo of -- Tasty's -- the Power of Flower7 Salad
--Tasty-- and I collaborated on this colorful spring/summer salad today! There are as many variations of the salad as there are vegetables, fruits and herbs! Use a light vinaigrette of your choice to complete the recipe. Read *Note below in the directions. --Tasty Dish-- would like to dedicate this recipe to flower7.

- 2Place the baby spinach or mixed greens towards the bottom of a platter.
- 3Set the green onions on the platter-these are your "flower stalks".
- 4Place the slices of bell pepper in a "flower" pattern on the green onion stems.
- 5Place the strawberry slices (the "petals") between slices of bell pepper "petals". (I would have added more strawberries but I ran out.).
