New Linky - Recipe Box 1

Add your recipe to the RECIPE BOX LINKY by linking below.
I am closing Bake With Bizzy and opening the Recipe Box.
Help me fill it up with delicious dishes.  Anything food related is welcome.


Honey Almond Strawberry Salad

This is such a delicious salad, I thought it would be appropriate to open up my Recipe Box and find it.  I discovered on the linky, My Meatless Mondays and it is from The Vegetarian Casserole Queen.

I didn't have all the ingredients, on hand, but I was hungry so I altered it to fit what was in my kitchen.  I enjoyed this light meal and could have had a second plate.

I thought the star of this salad was the honey almond goat cheese.  It has a delicate flavor, yet it dominated the recipe.  I also love the cranberries with their chewiness.  Needless to say, strawberries are winners.  I would add mango to this recipe.

Strawberry Poppyseed Salad


Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups spinach, torn into smaller pieces
1/2 cup diced strawberries
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup honey almond goat cheese
1-1/2 tablespoon creamy poppyseed dressing  (below)


Method:

Place spinach in bowl.  Add strawberries, dried cranberries and goat cheese.  Toss together.
Add the dressing and lightly mix.


The dressing is a combination of 4 - 5 recipes, I found online. It is simple to put together.


Poppy Seed Dressing
 

Ingredients:


1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sweet and spicy mustard

1 tablespoon orange juice

1 teaspoon poppy seeds


Method:

Mix all ingredients in a jar or blend in a small food processor or do this by hand, making sure, it is well combined.


Please do link up and help me  get the Recipe Box started with your recipes which have proven themselves, time and again.

    1. Hi Winnie, thanks for the congrats. If you can't get real strawberries, can you find frozen. Certainly not as good but it does work.

    1. You may not be a baker, but you sure are a cook and a photographer. I am glad that this is better for you. I was seeing more recipes that were not baked and realized, I had taken the wrong route. I hope to have fun with this.
