Ingredients
  • Salad:
  • 1 package ramen noodles, crushed, flavor packet discarded
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, washed and dried
  • One 5-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • Dressing:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
Directions

For the salad: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix the ramen noodles, almonds, sunflower seeds and melted butter. Transfer to a baking sheet and toast in the oven, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Tear the lettuce and combine with the spinach, strawberries and cheese in a large salad bowl.

For the dressing: Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar. Combine the oil, paprika, salt and garlic and then add to the sugar-vinegar mixture. Mix well and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Just before serving, sprinkle the crunchy topping over the salad green and toss the salad with enough dressing to coat the greens.

One of the best simple salads I ever made. Thanks Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this salad for our Easter dinner. It was the best! I agree that there is more dressing than you need, however, we eat a lot of salads and were able to use up the extra dressing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This salad is delicious, but I will often just make the dressing to use for other salads. The dressing is the best part. I usually half the dressing recipe and use a pinch of garlic powder in place of the fresh garlic. Everyone always wants the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was great. I saved some of the dressing and made another salad for the next night. 5 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
5 stars all the way! Every time I make this salad, everyone asks me for the recipe! The flavors and textures are heaven to your tongue! Way to go Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an awesome, tasty salad and so easy to make. Thinking we didn't need such a large amount of dressing, I halved everything except the sugar, which I reduced to 1/4c (after tips from others stating the dressing was too sweet!). 2 tbsp. of melted butter was suffice for the crunchy topping and it was toasted in my oven in under 5 minutes, so keep an eye on it. A definite keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is definitely a 5 star. I made it for a small gathering and everyone loved it. I left out the sunflower seeds and almonds because I didn't have any around. The ramen noodles was a nice touch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe! It was so simple and tasted delicious! I used 1/4 cup of sugar instead of 3/4 and perhaps may switch olive oil for the butter next time. Awesome, thanks Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published
