A really good salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Strawberry bacon salad is bright in color and flavor. The sweet summer strawberries, salty bacon, zesty red onion, and tart Feta cheese balance each other beautifully. It's a delight from the first bite. A drizzle of the fresh strawberry poppy seed dressing is the perfect touch. This simple salad can be served as a seasonal starter or it can be a meal in itself.

Note: If not being served right away, we recommend letting guests dress their own salad according to taste. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
