Strawberry Romaine Salad

Submitted by: ARINDANA
Strawberry Romaine Salad

Introduction

A nice summer salad that is a great dish to bring to an outdoor party... or to eat any time of the year. This recipe was modified from a full fat version and it tastes quite nice without that extra fat! The original recipe also called for baby spinach but not everyone likes spinach (like my dad). The original recipe was given to me by a family friend. A nice summer salad that is a great dish to bring to an outdoor party... or to eat any time of the year.

  • I made this dressing recently for a spinach & strawberry salad and it was WONDERFUL... Highly recommended. I prefer mayo to miracle whip. - 7/6/11

  • I used only about 1/2 the dressing on the salad, just enough to lightly coat everything. What a refreshing taste...a nice change from the usual salad. I'm adding this one to my cookbook! - 9/16/10

    I also don't use all the dressing either. Glad you liked :)

  • Enjoyed this very much....tweaked it a little bit by using a store-bought light bleu cheese dressing instead of making my own dressing and added a few chunks of bleu cheese. Yum! - 6/1/10

  • I found this, wrote down the ingredients to shop and forgot to keep the measurements! It will be even better this time. I may add a few crunchies (almonds or croutons). - 5/30/10

    I bet pumpkin or sunflower seeds would be tasty too!
