If you’re looking for the perfect recipe (whether you’re staying in or bringing a dish to a party), try this spinach salad with strawberries recipe.
Without fail, wherever I go, when I bring this salad, I’m asked for the recipe…so I’ve just started traveling with it in hand! I got the recipe from my mother-in-law, Anita, but I believe it originally came from her friend, Becky Mydock. You’ll be thanking both those ladies for this is fresh, easy, and delicious dish.
We often omit the mandarin oranges (and I believe the original recipe calls for slivers of celery too), but we like to keep it simple with just the strawberries, almonds and Chinese noodles.
