Strawberry Crunch Salad
We eat salads all the time so I like to look for different ways to make them and found this recipe and changed it up a little bit. It turned out amazing. It included strawberries and since they will be in season soon I figured this would be perfect. After looking over the recipe I decided I would cut the amount of sugar and oil by 1/3. I also used what I had on hand, pecans and sunflower seeds. It was crunchy and delicious.
1 package Ramen noodles crushed, packet discarded
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons butter melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 head romaine lettuce in bit size pieces
2 cups of spinach
1 pint sliced fresh strawberries
In a small bowl mix the ramen noodles, sunflower seed, and pecans with the melted butter until coated.
In a small bowl combine sugar, vinegar, oil, paprika, salt and garlic and whisk together.
I then put mine in a jar and refrigerate it until ready to use. This makes it’s easy to shake it up before pouring.
I used the remaining dressing on another salad the next night.
