Strawberry Spinach Salad

Recently I posted a dressing that goes lovely this fresh green lettuce, spinach and strawberry salad. I also posted a {How-to} on Candied Almonds and Pecans. These three things go together so well that you'll want to eat the whole bowl of salad for dinner. I am a salad lover. Right after I had baby 2 salad was my favorite thing to eat. I'd eat just lettuce with shredded carrots and ranch, and I'd eat 3 plates full. This salad is perfect for any time of year, but especially now when the strawberries are so yummy in the stores (or will be in your garden soon).

I've always loved a sweet and fruity green salad. However after making it so many times and having a few leftovers I decided that I needed to make a salad where you didn't have the nuts and dressing tossed into it (which is what I found most called for). I wanted to add the nuts and dressing right on my plate before eating. I mostly wanted this because the leftovers get too soggy - and I'm not a soggy salad fan! :) Doing the salad this way is awesome, because if you have leftovers you'll be able to keep them fresh tasting. I've been dreaming this salad up for a month, and after perfecting the dressing it's all here. Hope you love it too!
