I wanted to include a salad in my Critter Country inspired menu and the Hungry Bear Restaurant has a really yummy one, the Hungry Bear Picnic Salad. The salad is described as “seasoned Turkey Breast, Strawberries, Feta Cheese, Cranberries, Roasted Almonds and Jicama on top of Mixed Greens with a Strawberry Vinaigrette” on their menu. I love the flavors and that this salad includes the sweet of the strawberries, the tangy of the cranberries and the crunch of the jicama. This is an easy salad to pull together and a rally pleases a crowd. I will be making this salad often to have on hand for lunches and dinner.
