Here's a strawberry salad recipe snippet from an old magazine. Check out the ingredients below, but please don't use yogurt. For some reason, yogurt leaves some bitter after taste in the month. So I use the cashew dressing instead.

Sweeten the Spring season with some sunflower strawberry salad. You know Spring is the time to really indulge on strawberries. Yes, this fruit is a Spring favorite. The abundance of these berries makes you wanna go and harvest them yourself.

Do you love berries? Please you must love them because your body will sure love them. They're full of anti-oxidant as we know it. So go buy some or go to your local farmer, get the kids on a hay ride and make some sunflower strawberry salad!

Here's the ingredients:

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 medium apple, diced (any kind of apple will do)
1 cup seedless green grapes halved or you can pick whatever type of grapes you like that's available to you
1/2 cup thinly sliced stalks of celery
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup fat-free strawberry yogurt or use some cashew dip made with raw cashews (recipe below)
2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower kernels

** Lettuce leaves (optional)

In a large bowl, combine strawberries, diced apple, halved grapes, the celery sliced thinly and the raisins. Stir in the yogurt or the cashew dip. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour for the flavors to get friendly with each other. Just before serving, stir in the sunflower kernels or seeds. Toss to mix with everything.

You can serve on a lettuce leaf if desired or simply use your favorite salad bowl.

Enjoy the strawberry season!

Yield: 6 servings

For the Cashew Dip:

Take 1/2 RAW cashews and soak them water for a few hours. Blend or process in a food processor with water. Add water accordingly for a desired consistency of a dip. Use this as a spread to replace that mayonaise. Who needs that mayo. Use this cashew dip for dressings too.

Enjoy the strawberry season!
