Strawberry Almond Salad

This salad is beyond beautiful and delicious! I made this Strawberry Almond Salad for a family dinner we had a week ago. It was AWESOME! I love getting together with family; we always laugh, play and eat good food! When I walked in with this salad, I got so many oohs.. and ahhhs.. from my nieces (I have 5 nieces) and sister! It was so funny, they were all so excited to eat this beautiful salad.

My Aunt Bugs taught me an invaluable lesson with "berry salads" last time she visited. 
She said, to put your salad on a platter or cookie sheet! 
We've all been there when dishing up our portion of salad, all "the good stuff" falls to the bottom of the bowl! All the berries, nuts and fruit show up with the last few scoops of the bowl. It's almost better to be the LAST to get your salad! So, to ensure everyone gets "the good stuff" put it on a platter or cookie sheet! Aunt Bugs, you are a GENIUS! Everyone gets the perfect scoop of salad when it's on a platter!


Strawberry Almond Salad

1 pkg. Spinach
1 pkg. Garden Salad Mix
1 (1 lb.) Carton of Strawberries, sliced
2 c. Grapes Halved
1 c. Slivered Almonds
1 c. Mozzarella Cheese
Raspberry Vinegrette

Cut or rip your spinach into smaller pieces, for easier eating. (I hate having to shove HUGE leaves of spinach into my mouth! I know I look as ridiculous, as I feel! Do everyone a favor and save them from embarrassing spinach moments.) 

Place ingredients in order on a flat platter or cookie sheet:
Lettuce & Spinach
Strawberries
Grapes
Cheese
Almonds

Drizzle the Raspberry Vinaigrette over everything just before serving. Give it all a small toss and serve!

DELISH!
