I didn't really like the combo of strawberries and feta however I liked the dressing. I used half of the oil it called for and I substituted olive oil. Won't do the salad again but will make the dressing. Read More

Yum, substitute the dressing for 0 carb rasberry vinegarette for Atkins folks. I served it to both low carb dieters and normal eaters by serving the dressings on the side. Read More

This was the perfect salad for a dinner I went to. One of the women there ate at least 5 bowls! I served the dressing on the side so everyone could just put however much they wanted on. I also used "Spring Mix" pre-packed lettuce instead of Romaine. Read More

What a pretty and delicious salad. Instead of almonds I used coarsely chopped pecans but I still roasted them per the directions. I used the pre-cut romaine salad in a bag - could have used two bags since I had more of the other ingredients than I needed for 1 bag of lettuce. I wouldn't dump all the dressing on at once since it makes a generous amount even for 2 bags of salad. I tossed some in then put the rest in a cruet for people to add. Don't hesitate to serve this at your dinner parties - my neighbor asked for the recipe! Thanks for posting it! Read More

My mother and I both loved this salad. The sharpness of the feta balanced the sweet strawberries perfectly! The only problem I had was that the dressing was too heavy; I think reducing the oil a bit might help. Read More

My husband and I don't agree on many food items but we both really enjoyed this salad. We did use cider vinegar instead... I just can't buy another vinegar bottle! Very very good. And a nice short cut buy the almonds already roasted and packaged in the salad area. Will definitly put in our favorites! Read More

I served this for bunco last night and it was a hit. I doubled the salad part of the recipe (my ladies live for salad!) Prepared the dressing for one recipe as suggested by others and it was super. Strawberries are in season right now so I will be making this one again. Read More
