I love salads that combine fruit and vegetables! I love the sweet taste combined with a good vinaigrette dressing. I have my favorite strawberry salad already posted on this blog (which is to die for) but really has a lot of sugar. This salad is a delicious combination of a traditional salad with a slight hint of sweetness obtained from the fruit. The first time we had this salad my husband was the instigator on getting the recipe. He loved it! I have been making this salad ever since.
1 head romaine lettuce
1 bag spinach
10 sliced up strawberries
2 cans mandarin oranges
Shredded cheddar cheese
Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing
- any vinaigrette would work. That's just the one we really like.
Cut or tear romaine lettuce into desired size. Rinse both your romaine lettuce and spinach. Combine romaine lettuce and spinach in a large salad bowl. Top with sliced strawberries, mandarin oranges, croutons, sunflower seeds, and shredded cheese. Right before serving add dressing and toss to combine.
Thanks Sarah for the great Recipe!
