Green + Red = Healthy

I bet you never learned that one in math class, did you? Allow me to explain:

Green.

Red.

Put them together.

Add a little of this.

And there you have it, my friends. Green + Red = Healthy.

I decided to make a homemade strawberry poppyseed dressing. I did not use a recipe. It turned out okay.

(translation: it was oily, I couldn’t get it to combine right in my cool little oil dispenser, and I won’t make it again. Which is technically impossible anyway seeing as I have no clue what all I put in it, much less the proportions.)

If you decide to make a homemade strawberry poppyseed dressing, I suggest looking at these recipes from Simple Bites and Cheeky Kitchen. The one from Cheeky KitchenΒ looks exceptionally delish.

And there you have it. Green + Red does indeed = healthy.

Math class over.

    My homemade dressings always turn out oily too–and I have a similar cruet (or whatever it’s called). Maybe it’s the jar and not the cook πŸ™‚

    Your salad looks delicious! Love strawberry season πŸ™‚

    I actually use Ken’s Northern Lite Italian for Spinach/Strawberry salad. And feta. Kind of a weird combo, but I love it. Actually, I use that Ken’s for everything!

  3. I need to blog about my spinach salad strawberry πŸ˜‰ I make a version of this salad – http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/cooking-live/spinach-salad-with-strawberries-recipe/index.html.

    The pecans or walnuts done like that are DIVINE! and I always make extra and just store them so we can have the salad multiple times.

    I add mandarin oranges and grapes to it too if I have them and FETA cheese too – yummy! and salad oil?? not sure exactly what that is supposed to be – I have used canola sometimes and olive oil sometimes. I refrigerate it cause I add some crushed strawberries too it. which if you use olive oil solidifies it – but you can melt it again in the microwave or on the counter.

    This salad is my all time favorite!!
