This salad takes me back to my days in the USA. I was always amazed that strawberries could be so delicious in a green salad. Here is the evidence! I was looking through the site for this recipe in fact and didn't realise it wasn't on here! So we quickly and happily remedied that! It is a pretty easy salad and surprisingly delicious. The acidity of the strawberries just adds something quite yummy.
Don't drown the salad in the dressing, by all means keep some in a jar for any other salads you like, as it keeps well in the fridge. A quick shake will revive its texture and suddenly your next salad tastes just as wonderful!
