  1. Just received my “Add A Pinch” cookbook and love it
    Great job

  2. My family loves this salad! I make it with chopped walnuts and goat cheese crumbles, delicious ?

    • I’m thrilled that you and your family enjoy this, Sally! It’s one of our favorite salads too! Sounds great with the goat cheese!!! Thanks so much! xo

      • I served it with Roasted almonds and missed out on the poppy seeds. It was delicious. My Family loved it too, they wanted the recipe in the shelf. It was the first time I had ever tasted or made a strawberry salad, but it won’t be the last.

      • I’m so glad you made it and that your family loved it! It is one of our favorites, too!

  3. I made this salad today for our Easter lunch, but because of the weather I couldn’t find any strawberries in Oklahoma so I used fresh blueberries and black berries and it was a hit! Thank you so much for your recipe. I will definitely be making this again, 

  4. Really stunning salad, colourful and tasty. A def remake!
