We had another playgroup brunch this past week and one of the moms brought this Spinach and Strawberry Salad. It was so freaking good, I could have eaten the whole bowl. But I wasn’t greedy. She posted the recipe for us today and I had to share. Easy to make and yumm-o! Thanks to Penny for sharing the recipe. This is a great party dish or great for a side dish at home. Did I mention it’s delish? Mmmmm…
