Strawberry Tossed Salad

This is all that was left of a giant bowl of salad after a recent potluck...
Before I moved to Kentucky, I went to grad school in North Carolina.  While there, I made lots of amazing friends, and one in particular loved to cook.  She always brought the most amazing goodies to gatherings, but her Strawberry Tossed Salad was my hands-down favorite.  It's fresh and sweet and crunchy and just plain ol' good at the same time.  And Lara was generous enough to share the recipe with me before I moved here.  This is extremely lucky for me since every spring I start dreaming about this salad...  :-)  Go make it yourself before strawberries are out of season!

(Lara recently started her own food, culture and art blog over at Durham Food & Art, so go check her out!)  
Strawberry Tossed Salad
Serves a crowd

1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp paprika

12 cups greens of choice (I like fresh spinach--it holds up well to the dressing.)
2 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup monterey jack cheese
1 cup honey roasted cashews or sugared pecans

Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk or in a jar with a lid and shake.  Let sit for at least an hour, but don't refrigerate it or the olive oil with harden.

When ready to serve, toss all of the ingredients in a large bowl.  (Don't make the salad until you are ready to serve.  The cheese, strawberries and nuts get soggy fast.)

What a great looking salad! I'm particularly intrigued by the paprika in the dressing - a little sweet heat!

This looks delicious! I love a little sweet/savory salad in the spring. That salad would be great with some salty feta crumbled over top, too. Yum!

This looks like a stellar salad! We got strawberries and mixed greens in our CSA today, so it was meant to be that I found this! =)

Once, I was Cheap Air Forces sitting in leathers in the ER, restrained to a hospital bed with a security guard outside my door.

Most likely you have a burned out turn signal relay. Most likely the relay is located in your fuse panel and is a very inexpensive item to replace.
