Oh my gosh, the other day was National Almond Day. For those of you that don’t know, I am 100% ADDICTED to almonds.
As soon as I saw this recipe I knew that I had to try it because not only did it incorporate almonds, it also included one of my absolute favorite fruits: strawberries.
Didn’t it turn out beautifully?
The vinegar in the dressing gave it a big kick and next time I think I would use substantially less vinegar or maybe even try Italian dressing.
Don’t worry if you didn’t know that it was National Almond Day, I ate enough for everyone 😉
