  • OMG Marie! This looks soooo good! I love feta and fruit in a salad. That sweet and salty combo is so satisfying and impossible to beat. Have a great Monday!

  • i used to haaaaate raw spinach, and the only way you could get me to eat it was in strawberry spinach salad with poppyseed dressing, lol. this sounds even better because there’s tons of berries and oranges, plus i like raw spinach a lot more now!

    • I am glad you like raw spinach a lot more now! ha ha! You can also just leave the spinach out and have a fruit, walnut, and feta salad! Thanks Heather!

  • Such a fun salad! Makes me happy just looking at it! Reminds me of the awesome weathers we are having and BBQs that are coming!! 😀

  • This looks amazing and the dressing looks simple and delicious! Do you think bleu cheese or gorgonzola would work as well? Blue cheese is my husband’s favorite so I always try to use it when I can.

    • I think that blue cheese would work well in this salad, especially if your husband enjoys it a lot. Its salty and pungent flavour would work well with the sweetness of the berries and especially with the citrusy flavours of the orange.

  • I LOVE this salad. It is seriously one of my fav salads ever. I’m making it for a girls trip in a couple of weeks and was trying to think of a good entree/protein to go with it. Any suggestions from your own recipe bank?

  • The salad turned out amazing. Thank You!
    For the dressing, instead of honey I added 1/4 cup of orange juice and 2 tbsp of lime juice. I also added some dry basil and finely chopped fresh mint leaves. Also added 1 tsp of black pepper.

    • Thank you Sunita! The dressing modifications sounds so tasty. Full of bright and fresh flavours!
