What’s on the Menu? – Strawberry Won-Ton Salad

Did you miss me?  I have to give a huge ThAnK YoU to Valerie, Tricia and Tracey for being patient with me over this past month.  My grandmother passed away last month and it’s been a lot of ups and downs for the past few weeks.  I appreciate your support, sympathy and friendship.

Now, enough of the mushy stuff, here is one of my new favorite salads!  I had it last year at a neighborhood activity and just had to have the recipe.  I know you’ll love it too!

1 head lettuce – chopped
1 pkg. spinach
1/2 c. bacon pieces
1/2 purple onion – finely chopped
1-2 c. fresh strawberries – sliced
15 wontons (or more) cut into strips and fried
butter toffee cashews – chopped
grilled chicken strips (optional)

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together and toss with dressing.

Dressing:

4 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 c. oil
1 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 c. strawberry freezer jam

Whisk all ingredients together.  Enjoy!
