Spinach and Strawberry Salad

February 18, 2007

We had another playgroup brunch this past week and one of the moms brought this Spinach and Strawberry Salad. It was so freaking good, I could have eaten the whole bowl. But I wasn’t greedy. She posted the recipe for us today and I had to share. Easy to make and yumm-o! Thanks to Penny for sharing the recipe. This is a great party dish or great for a side dish at home. Did I mention it’s delish? Mmmmm…
