Very good recipe! Thank you Renae for sharing this one. The only problem I had was finding roasted honey alonds so I made my own. I could only find sliced natural almonds. I put one cup in a bowl and mixed them with 2 tablespoons of honey, then lined a cookie sheet with foil and sprayed it with Pam. I carefully sprinkled them on the sprayed cookie sheet and roasted them at 400F watching them until they began to brown for only a few mins, then I moved them around so I could get most of the moisture out and browned them evenly. It can be a little wet when you take them out because they will candy more when they cool. Also, you can seperate the ones that stick together when they cool. So don't sweat it if you can't find roasted honey nuts you can make your own. Read More

What an awesome taste! This salad definately tantalizes my palate! I didn't have the honey roasted almonds but I wish I did! I used the plain almonds and it was still amazing! Read More

So good and easy! When I'm excessively lazy, it's even good with my Kraft Raspberry Vinagerette Dressing! And if I have them, I throw in a small can of mandarin oranges. Read More

I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit! I couldn't find honey roasted almonds at my store and didn't want to take the time to make them myself, but I found a can of honey roasted pecans and used that instead. It was good--I think better than it would have been with the almonds! Will definitely use this recipe again! Read More

We loved this salad - full of superfoods! Here's how to make Honey Roasted Almonds - use them in this salad or anywhere! Soaking almonds overnight releases more of the almond's "goodness" for you. 2 c. whole skin on almonds 1/4 c. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tbsp. honey 2 tbsp. water 2 tsp. almond or vegetable oil Spread the almonds in a single layer in a shallow ungreased baking pan and place in a cold oven. Bake at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally, until the internal color of nuts is tan (12 to 15 minutes). Remove from oven and set aside. Thoroughly mix the sugar and salt. Stir together the honey, water and oil in a medium size pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the roasted almonds and continue to cook and stir until all the liquid has been absorbed by the nuts (about 5 minutes). Immediately transfer to a medium bowl and sprinkle sugar mixture over all and toss. Spread on wax paper and cool. Be careful as you can burn the mixture quickly while getting the liquid absorbed into the nut. Read More

I am sooo glad I made this recipe. My family said no it sounds weird, but when I placed it in front of them it was so pretty and a soft sweet aroma followed from the dish no one could resist it. Even my seven year old said it was "tasty". Wonderful recipe!!! Read More

YUUUMMMMMYYYY!!! I never would of eatten spinach except in a dip with cheese before this salad that is more like a dessert!! It is SOOOO good and fresh tasting!! I've done the recipe exactly as written and i've also substituted splenda for the sugar and there is NO difference in taste!! I can imagine it cuts down on the sugar by a huge amount...VERY VERY good! You will NOT be disappointed! And the "4" helpings is more like 8!! We used a whole bag of baby spinach and whole quart of strawberries for this...superb!! Read More

I was so disappointed in this recipe. I didn't like the dressing at all. Maybe using a balsamic vinegar would have been better? This just wasn't very good. I couldn't even eat this one after several bites. Sorry, I tried. Read More
