I love strawberries… I have always loved strawberries… even as a kid I thought it was a treat to eat them… so when I saw a strawberry salad on a café game that I play.. I thought… sure why not?
I found a recipe by Rachael Ray but it didn’t totally ring my chimes… so I set about making my own version…. the result?... pure heaven for a strawberry lover like me.
You can use a different salad green but I urge you to try the spinach called for in the recipe.. it really does add a perfect flavor to the salad.
The dressing uses strawberry or raspberry jam… either one will work well.
If you haven’t tried goat cheese… now is the perfect time to try it… it has the consistency of cream cheese… but is a bit tangy like sour cream… the perfect accent to this salad..
The teaspoon used for the jam is a measuring teaspoon not a coffee teaspoon.
The dressing recipe makes enough for 2-3 salads depending on the size of the salad.
Quantities for the salad have been left off… it’s entirely up to you how much to make!
I know this may seem like an odd salad… but try it.. you just may discover a new salad to love!
