Strawberry Spinach Salad
Karen Burroughs * Ashton, Maryland
2005 Award Winning Recipe!

Karen’s over-the-top exclamations about this salad turn out to have been understatements. “It is so good”, according to Karen, “that you will want it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!” We do. Karen adores her gardens, sheep and Japanese Chin dogs as if they were all her children. Her husband Gary Hayre is a willing gardening accomplice and an ice wine maker extraordinaire.

  • 1/3 cup sugar

Serve and wait for the yummy reviews. Serves 8.
