Summer Fruit and Mixed Greens

Author: Canadian Living

"This salad evolved over a period of time," says Marilyn, who kept changing ingredients until she was satisfied. "Originally the salad featured sweet red peppers, which I didn't enjoy, but I wanted to keep the red color. That's where the strawberries came in." Toss your favorite greens — Boston, romaine, curly endive — in this spectacular fresh-tasting salad. It's beautiful on a summer brunch table.
