A light and healthy romaine salad with fresh sliced strawberries and a crunchy walnut topping tossed in a delicious homemade dressing. This Crunchy Romaine Strawberry Salad is perfect for Summer!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve discovered that since having children my body just doesn’t look like it used to. I’m actually at a pretty low number on the scale, but there are just parts of my body that I’m not loving right now. My arms jiggle when I brush my teeth, I have belly bulge when I wear my favorite jeans, and I cringe at the thought of wearing shorts this Summer. I decided it’s time to start toning up! I’m young, healthy, and there’s no reason I can’t fit a workout into my schedule! …my blog will still be here if I go workout for an hour, right?
So last week I dusted off the old P90X dvds and fought through my first round of plyometrics, ab ripper, and all the other torture Tony throws at you. And I don’t want to jinx myself… but it feels GOOD. I feel muscles working that I didn’t even know I still had! I’m going to try hard to stay committed, and hopefully I’ll be beach body ready in no time! Wish me luck!
As part of my get-fit mission, I’ve been trying to eat healthier. Don’t get me wrong, I love my pizza, pasta, and ice cream, but I try to balance all those delicious calories with healthier options whenever I can. And with the hot Summer weather on its way, salads are a perfect healthy meal. I’m not a fan of boring, plain salads and this one is anything but that! Crisp romaine lettuce, sweet strawberries, a bit of green onion, and a delicious crunchy topping made from walnuts and crushed ramen noodles browned in butter all tossed in a homemade dressing… YUM! Eating healthy never looked (or tasted!) this good!

I’ve shared today on my blog: http://www.52mantels.com/2013/06/summer-food-crafts.html
I love this salad. I am glad I found original author. I found your picture used by someone on pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/pin/355010383097631475/
This recipe was delicious!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! It’s a favorite of mine! Thanks stopping by to give me a “thumbs up!”
This looks wonderful! I was searching for a good salad for my family to make for my birthday meal. This is my first choice.
I was disappointed though when I hopped over to Sumo’s Sweet Stuff and found out that it was originally posted on Taste of Home. Thanks for sharing it but I’d like to encourage you in the future to remember to give credit where credit is due.
Hi LauraLee, thank you for your comment! I completely agree with giving credit where credit is due, which is why I always post “inspired by …” or “adapted from …” at the end of my recipes, unless of course the recipe is an original. For this particular recipe, I made very few if any changes to the recipe that inspired me from Taste of Home, so when you click over to Sumo’s Sweet Stuff for the recipe, I clearly posted “Recipe originally from Taste of Home” underneath. That’s how I’d want others treating my recipes, so that’s how I do things too!
I appreciate your feedback, and hope you continue to enjoy our recipes! Thanks, LauraLee! 🙂
Made this for a bridal shower. Everyone commented on the walnut/ramen crunch. I will definitely do this recipe again.
