Delicious Strawberry Summer Salad Recipe From Taste of Home

Photo: Taste of Home

The taste of this salad is incredible!  I was leery…a vinaigrette on strawberries?  Surprisingly yummy!!!  And extremely healthy and calorie free, especially when I substituted Splenda for the sugar.  One note….we were planning on skipping the green onions because I was lazy….but, in the end, I didn’t and you shouldn’t either…it enhanced the flavor, perfectly!


7 cups torn romaine

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

2 celery ribs, finely chopped

2 green onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup canola oil

2 tablespoons sugar ( I used Splenda for less calories)

2 tablespoons cider vinegar (I used Rice Vinegar, it’s milder)

(ingredients continued)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce ( I used a couple drops of Tabasco

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted  (optional)


In a large bowl, combine the romaine, strawberries, celery and onions. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and pepper sauce. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds. Yield: 8 servings.
