    Yum. I would definitely serve this for guests. The dressing was maybe a tad heavy on oil - I may use 3/4 cup vs. 1 cup next time. I wish I could get nutritional info for the left over salad dressing.

    I added goat cheese to this and it was amazing!

    This is my go-to spinach strawberry salad, we usually add grilled chicken. I use balsamic instead. The basil is awesome in this, don't leave it out. I would however cut the oil a little.

    This is my go to recipe for when I'm entertaining and without fail, someone asks me for the recipe - that is a 5-star in my opinion!

    Added some burrata - the creaminess of the cheese balanced really nicely with the sweetness of the strawberries and the tanginess of the dressing and provided a good contrast to the crunchiness of the almonds. Based on other reviews, I cut the amount of oil in half and used about 8 Tbsp of dressing for 5 ounces of spinach. Husband loved it!

    Fabulous! Made the whole thing in under 5 minutes for a late Valentine's supper. Served it in a trifle bowl and it was beautiful. Company worthy. Do NOT skip using the dressing..it's a must and brings the whole thing together!

    I figured I would try this for dinner tonight since I had all the ingredients...I am always looking for ways to use fresh herbs from my garden. I used less oil based on other reviewers and added grilled chicken to make it a main dish. I also threw in some avocado that I found in the refrige. It was delicious and I would make it again and serve it to guests. Looked beautiful too.

    This was a big hit today at a dinner. I didn't have fresh basil or chives but used Herbes de Provence seasoning, next time I will look harder for the fresh herbs. I did add lemon to the vinaigrette because it lacked something.
