Strawberry salads are a great summer salad. They work as a side dish to any meal or as a light lunch! The fresh strawberries with the bacon, in this Spinach, Bacon and Strawberry Salad will have you making this salad all the time.
We went strawberry picking the other day with our little monkeys It was great to get out as a family and stroll through the fields with our buckets and pick tasty little bites. We are a strawberry loving family for sure! If I get busy and don’t know what I’m going to make for dinner I will usually grab some frozen chicken sausage out of the freezer and cook that up for the boys and slice some fresh strawberries. Not totally balanced but better than fast food, and tastes better too! A common problem that people leave when they go strawberry picking is the need to find something to do with ALL THOSE STRAWBERRIES! I think it’s the size of the buckets.
