Fava and Butter Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
This salad is so delicious, so refreshing, so satisfying, and so easy that you must try it. One key to this simple combination is letting it chill in the fridge for a few hours to marry all the flavors. You can substitute parsley or basil for the mint, but I beg you to try it with the mint. There is something about the taste of fava beans that the mint really brings out like no other herb.

Springtime Spinach Salad

Rating: 5 stars 37
Strawberries and spinach are delicious in the Spring, and tossed with other fresh ingredients, real bacon, and hard cooked eggs, they make a wonderful salad. A sweet, tangy oil and vinegar dressing tops it off!

Quick and easy salad and so healthy! Delicious blend of fruit and greens! You can substitute goat cheese for the blue cheese, if desired. You can substitute pecans or almonds for the walnuts, if desired. You can substitute maple syrup for the honey, if desired.

Strawberry Spinach Salad
Rating: 5 stars 2950

Someone brought this salad to a pot luck dinner and I had to have the recipe. I have made it many, many times since then and I have been asked for the recipe every time I bring it somewhere. It is also a great way to get kids to eat spinach!
