That looks kind of good. Have you tried it yet?

Yes, I made it for the 4th of July. The dressing is sweet so it's perfect with the berries!

Oh bless you for posting this and I'm so glad I found it! I had this at a ladies dinner at church this summer and I never did find out who brought it and it was absolutely delicious! Now I can make it and enjoy it over and over again! Thank you Kelli!

Oh how funny that this is my favorite salad of all time, I bring it whenever we go to a picnic, and you posted it on my birthday! I always have to give the recipe out. :)

Just saw this while browsing on your blog! I make a similar one you might like to try the variation. Rocket, strawberries, halloumi (Greek) cheese and bacon bits. Marindade the strawberries in olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar with a sprinkling of salt and groun pepper. Mix ingedients together and sprinkle bacon bits on the top! YUMMY!
