Full Answer

To make strawberry salad with poppy seed dressing, start by making the dressing. Whisk together 3 tablespoons of light mayonnaise with 3 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of fat-free milk, 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds. Divide 10 ounces of romaine lettuce onto six plates, and distribute 1 cup of sliced strawberries evenly. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the dressing over each salad.

For strawberry-spinach salad, thinly slice 1/4 of a red onion. Mix the slices with 12 ounces of baby spinach, 16 ounces of quartered strawberries, 4 ounces of crumbled blue cheese and 1/2 cup of sliced and toasted almonds. Drizzle with red wine vinaigrette, and season with salt and pepper to taste. As an alternative, replace the almonds, cheese and red wine vinaigrette with pecans, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette.

The Food Network recipe is a main dish that calls for crushing 1 package of ramen noodles and combing them with 1/4 cup of sliced almonds, 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup of melted butter. Toast the mixture on a baking sheet for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Combine 1 head of romaine lettuce with 5 ounces of baby spinach, 1 pint of sliced strawberries and 1 cup of Parmesan cheese. Mix with red wine vinaigrette, and serve with the ramen noodle topping.
