Savory Kiwi Strawberry Salad Recipe

Although this salad contains fruit, it is actually a savory dressing rather than something you would serve with ice cream. As well as the juicy strawberries and kiwis, this salad features a raspberry dressing and shredded greens. It is up to you which greens you go for. What about healthy spinach or crisp iceberg? You can try romaine or butter lettuce if you like. Just use your favorite, because any kind of raw greens work well with the fruity flavors.

Serve this as an unusual appetizer (it will serve eight people as an appetizer) or make it as an entrée. The sweetness of the fruit contrasts well with the savory greens and crunchy almonds. Swap the almonds for pecans or even walnuts if you like. The nuts add crunch and you can toast them yourself in a dry skillet (keep the skillet moving so they do not burn) or on a dry tray in the oven for a few minutes. This releases their aromas and turns them an attractive golden brown.

The acidity of the raspberry vinegar also counteracts the sweet flavor, but you can use wine vinegar if you do not have raspberry vinegar. Raspberry vinegar is always nice drizzled over strawberry salad recipes, but it is not an essential ingredient; you can get by without it.
