So many strawberry recipes, so little time... until #berrylove ends. If you don't know by now, strawberries are my favorite fruit. I would be remiss, if I didn't add my favorite salad. Strawberry Spinach Salad to #berrylove. Everybody has their own take, and I have mine.
This salad is gorgeous in presentation,with dark green Baby Spinach and red, ripe strawberries, dried cranberries,and chopped walnuts, drizzled with a Balsamic or Raspberry Vinaigrette. I am Lactose intolerant, so feel free to add crumbled Feta or Parmesan cheese as well. Pure heaven ! So when strawberries are in season, this is my go to salad. Enjoy

Gina, on Saturday. She made these for me to cheer me up and send hugs. For those of you that don't know, my 92 yr. old dad is in Hospice. Good news, Gina, the cookies worked. I had a big smile on my face, as I opened the box, and we could hardly wait to eat, one or three:) Thank you so much, Gina. Hope that you are feeling better. Be on the lookout for a box for you. For some of us, baking and cooking are therapy.
