"I've been trying to get the family to eat more salads, so I decided to give this one a try. I really didn't know what to expect (as we don't usually mix fruit into our green salads), but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this salad! My husband liked it, too... and my 15-month old twins loved the strawberries and cucumbers. Hardly any left-overs, which is a plus. My only complaint (and it's a small one) is that the dressing is a tad too sweet for us. I will make this again, but I'll cut the honey in half."
"A great, light salad! It makes very generous servings. The flavors are great. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 44"
"This is a really light salad, which would be great alongside some heavier flavours. I found it a tad sweet (used agave instead of honey), but I liked it. I used a mix of greens as well as romaine, and added half an avocado that I had to use up - was a nice addition. I think some nuts in this would be great too. Thanks Elmotoo!"
"Wonderful, light salad. Made it for dinner tonight for my family of five and we had no leftovers.
I will make this regularly this summer. Thanks!"
"This was my contribution to Easter dinner and it was very well received. I made this as written except for doubling the amount of strawberries. Thank you for sharing."
"Delicious and a welcome change in the middle of the week from an ordinary tossed salad! Also think this will be great with some tuna or chicken added for lunch. Thanks for sharing!"
"Yum! I was saying to myself "how could I improve on this"? and the only thing I could think of was adding roasted sunflower seeds! Seeds or no, this was a winner! Used some of the produce from our CSA box in the salad, too. Can't wait to make it again! Reviewed for Veg Tag/April."
"The was great with an avocado and egg salad andwich for supper last night! I used spinach in place of the romain and only 1/2 the honey because like another reviewer I am not big on sweet! I also added a bit of feta to add some saltiness! Mmmm. So good! Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*n Swap June 2010!"
"I have to admit I added lots of extra strawberries (they were on sale) and because my husband loves them. I am allergic, so I went around them. My husband really liked the salad and is taking the leftovers to work tomorrow. Even without the strawberries it had a good flavor, will try adding raspberries next time for me."
"I was looking for a recipe with strawberries and romaine when I came across this one. I found the dressing just a tad on the sweet side, so next time I am going to start off with 2 T of honey and work up from there. I didn't have any cuks, but took another reviewer's advice and served it with feta cheese, and it was quite enjoyable! Thanks for the posting!!!"
"Very nice. I did add some unsalted cashews for crunch. Super easy to throw together. Recipenapped for Veg*n Swap July 2009. THANKS!!"
"I made it twice this weekend. I Added Feta Cheese, and next time I will add Pecans. My husband loved it. Very refreshing. 5 Star in our home. Marilyn"
"Great dressing. The flavors work so well together, but I think that it is missing a crunch and agree that nuts would be a perfect addition to this salad. I will try pecans or walnuts next time."
"Didn't have green onions or poppy seed. Used sliced almonds and this was amazing! Love the dressing, it goes perfect with the salad, especially the strawberries, yum! Thanks!"
"Love the dressing"
"Ok, at first I thought green onions and strawberries weren't gonna be too tasty together, but I was wrong! I made this as my snack before I went to bed, and with the honey and balsamic vinegar dressing it was just perfect! Excellent dish!"
"Summer is over, but you wouldn't have guessed it at my dinner table last night - with the fresh cucumbers, onion and lettuce this couldn't have been any more refreshing. I make half of the dressing and it easily covered the salad for three of us last night. Everyone enjoyed this light meal!"
"Delicious! The combination of flavors is lovely and the dressing is "to die for.""
"I really enjoyed this salad! I just went strawberry picking and was looking for a different way to enjoy my berries. I added a little freshly ground pepper to my dressing, but other than that made it according to the recipe. Yummy!"
