Strawberry Walnut Salad
Over the weekend we went to some friend’s house for dinner, I was asked to bring a salad.
My theory on why I was asked to bring a salad: A couple of months ago this same couple came to our house for dinner. I had made stuffed steaks, pasta, roasted asparagus and my favorite salad. One would think that the steaks, pasta or asparagus would have been the big hit of the night, not the salad for pete’s sake! After all, aren’t salads just the “obligatory” healthy part of the meal? You’d think so unless you made this salad!
When dinner was done no one wanted dessert, they wanted more salad! We went through two bags of lettuce that night for 4 adults. I think we all get an A+ for eating our greens that night! This is why I’m 100% sure that I was asked to bring a salad! 🙂
I was introduced to this salad when we lived in Georgia and had just had Little Finch. Our realtor who sold us our house over a year prior brought us a huge homemade dinner (talk about Southern Hospitality!) The salad was part of the menu. Lover Boy and I “ate a mess out of it” as my southern counterparts would say. For some reason I never got my hands on the recipe until 21 months later when she sold our house again (the day before Laughing Coyote was born)! At our closing I was more excited about getting the recipe than the check for our house!
This salad is full of strawberries, walnuts, monterey cheese and the best salad dressing in the world. If you make this salad PLEASE make this dressing to go along with it. You will regret it if you don’t! (well not really, but I’m just sayin’)
Enough blabbing…lets just make some!
****DON’T FORGET TO DRIZZLE WITH THIS SALAD DRESSING THAT GOES WITH THE SALAD****
Next time you are invited to a dinner date and asked to bring something, skip on bringing the desserts, bring this salad! Your hosts will not be disappointed! Hope you guys enjoy this!
