Tasty Thursday

Strawberries are here! In keeping with a spring theme, this week's Tasty Thursday recipe is taken from our great 101 series—101 Things To Do With Salad by Melissa Barlow and Stephanie Ashcraft. This fresh-tasting recipe is not only delicious, but easy!

Strawberry-Spinach Salad with Lemon Dressing
1 cup slivered almonds
1 bag (10 ounces) spinach
1 1/2 apples, peeled and diced
1 cup dried cranberries
2 cups sliced strawberries

2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon mustard seed or dry mustard (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Candy the almonds by wetting and then rolling in sugar. Bake 10 minutes; cool completely.

In a bowl, toss together all the salad ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over salad just before serving and toss. Makes 8 servings.
