  • This looks so delicious! I’m glad I found this video:) What brand of feta do you use? I’ve had good feta in the past but have trouble finding one I like in the grocery store.

  • Hey Dani!!! Thanks so much for this recipe-Ive been craving kale and I knew you would come through for a good recipe. Hope everything is well with you and your family. As always, thanks for sharing.

  • I had a salad much like this in a restaurant the other day. It was delicious. The ingredients were all the same except it was also topped with some cubed roasted butternut squash, pommagranate seeds instead of the cranberries, and pecans instead of walnuts and a little tiny bit of bacon.

  • Sooooooo good! I just made my soinach salad video on my youtube channel! Spinach salad with farm grown spinach it was Deeeeeelicious! Check it out!

  • Its a little early, but my new years resolution is too lose some weight, I am bookmarking these shows to have your help along the way. Thanks for the great channel Dani!!

  • I recently saw some persimmons in my local store and I really want to try them but I know nothing about them. You should do a persimmon 101 video!

  • Sooooooo good! I just made my soinach salad video on my youtube channel! Spinach salad with farm grown spinach it was Deeeeeelicious! Check it out!

  • Dani, You have the best and easiest recipes ever! I knew I could count on you. I searched “spinach strawberry salad” and yours was the first to pop up; I watched a few others but yours is the best. Plus, I got to see your mole you spoke about on stories on IG a while back.:) ��

  • Yes! I have a video about this… Look for Dani Spies ‘How-To Store Fresh Herbs’ I would share the link but YT doesn’t allow link in the comments!

  • I want to learn how to make these walnuts. I tried last night with brown sugar and walnuts in a frying pan, kinda burned the sugar and all clumpy. I’m curious why you use sugar instead of brown sugar? Also why do the walnuts need to be cooked first? Thanks.

  • This makes me think of a salad I make to mimic the “Berry Almond Chicken Salad” Wendy’s sells. Fresh romaine lettuce (or a good spring mix), strawberries, blueberries, chicken breast, almond slivers, and raspberry vinaigrette. Yummy and so fresh for summer!

  • Hooray. In Washington a restaurant served a salad just like this and I am sooooo much craving it. Yes, they added chicken to it. This is PERFECT! Thank you.

  • i’m having my version of this salad even as we speak!
    i used chèvre cheese instead of gorgonzola, and since i forgot to buy honey, my dressing is honey-less.
    *lol*
    i had gastric bypass surgery almost four months ago, and since then food and eating have been somewhat of a struggle/relearning project, so recipes like this one are VERY welcome in my life THANKYOU!

  • HAY!!!! ITS ANGELA��������������
    Maybe my favorite from Dunder Mifflin, but they are all my favorite.
    I wonder if Dwight also has channel?

  • I love the office and love watching your videos. Josh, you are so talented!! I love all of your videos! We are trying to eat healthier so I love this! #summergiveaway

  • I make one similar to this. but with herb chicken, strawberries, red onions, feta, raspberry vinaigrette, and crunchy topping. soooo yummy.
    p.s.
    that cutting board is gorgeous.

  • I used cashew nut cheese instead but I love spinach and strawberries together and the dressing is perfect and yummy. I think it’s going to be my go to spinach salad and it’s easy enough to remember as well:)

  • I am trying to eat healthy and do better with the things I am eating. For that reason I love your video it show me that salads can be good and nutritious thanks keep posting more videos 

  • Omg, my husband only wants French or ranch on all of his salads. He is NEVER pleased when I make a dressing and he not only loved the salad but also the dressing! It’s so light and sweet. I’m not a fan of sweet or walnuts but once again, I enjoyed it so much!!

  • made the salad and I was dreading to try it, I cant stand the smell of the Apple cider vinegar. but I tried it and the salad is delicious!!

  • Hi!! This looks so good! I might take the feta out because I’m not a cheese fan but I love the idea of apples and walnuts together! Were you guys able to get the quinoa salad recipe that I commented in the other video? =)

  • Definitely making this soon! I’ll probably switch it up for blue cheese for my moms taste but this is what I needed for lunch gatherings!!

  • I love salads and we eat a lot of them during the summer. This one looks great and I like the idea of adding chicken to make it a complete meal. All it would need is some good bread and a nice glass of wine for the perfect meal on the patio!

  • I love you guys so much! You guys are the perfect duo and it’s so cool seeing Angela in videos outside of the office! Keep doing what you’re doing because I love your videos so much❤️❤️

  • I make a variation of this all the time! I add blue cheese crumbles and pieces of rotisserie chicken. So good! Love your videos ��

  • Heeeellllooooo…. right back! Ooh the two of you bring me JOY! Ugh, the happiness I receive after watching y’all is just bananas! Thank you both so much for being so humble relatable funny and a good example of a right pairing done in the right way… kudos to you both my friends… I know, I know…I’m always gushing….CAN NOT HELP IT…lol… xo

  • This salad looks delicious! I’m going to grill chicken and add this to our meal plan for the week. I’m always searching for something new and healthy and it’s a perfect meal for this heat. Thank you for sharing! I love your videos!!!

  • YUMMY salad!!! I agree with Josh, walnuts in salad ����!!! Also, Angela..I love your cherry shirt! We live an hour and a half south of Door County, Wisconsin where they are known for their cherry trees and cherry dish delights. I noticed on Rainn’s Instagram he and his wife were there just a few weeks ago. If you guys ever get a chance, I suggest you visit…you will love the many restaurants!! And there are lots of knick knack shops, which I know Josh will love, LOL!! ����������

  • This salad reminds me of Christmas dinner! Always served with homemade candied walnuts. Can’t wait for the homemade Oreo cookies + giveaway!

  • You guys should try making Waldorf salad. my grandma makes it every Christmas! it’s a great mix of sweet and sour i think both of you would love it!! love you guys and your channel��

  • Dani YES M’AM to not stressing over pie!!!!:+D A Blessed Thanksgiving to you!
    I just made a kale salad the other day. The recipe I followed mentioned allowing the shallots to rest in the liquids for a bit so the flavors would mesh. I did, but couldn’t really tell. I guess I like a more onion flavor. Question for ya: Are there different types of kale? I only find two, organic and non. If there’s a smaller leafed kale, I would need some information on that. THANK YOU! Denise

  • I made this for a potluck today and it was the most commented about dish at the party:) very tasty! I used Boursin cheese instead of gorgonzola but the dressing was AMAZING. thx for this

  • This is a little creepy but i just bought all of these ingredience today because I was craving it and now you have this recipe coming up. I love it!

  • I had this for supper and I have to say this is AMAZING!! You know it’s a good salad when the kids ask for it in their lunch!! I think I’m a five star mom

  • good job! Simple as 1-2-3 i love red onion and i think i would put very thinly slices on top and probably feta cheese and maybe walnuts instead of pecans=mahalo!!!

  • This looks absolutely delicious! I’m making this tomorrow.
    BTW do you have a cold? It sounds like it. I hope you’ll be well by thanksgiving if that’s the case.

  • I will accept shake shake shake. But it is still not as good as shake what your mamma gave ya, and I dont think it is possible to top flava flave…

  • Hi! I love your channel! The kids and I love to watch the videos and then try out the recipes. This is actually my favorite recipe. I love salads for dinner especially with as hot as it’s been lately. We also love he homemade Oreos. ❤️❤️

  • I love a spinach salad! I use that same recipe, except I use raspberry balsamic vinaigrette, and it is soo good and delicious. really yummy!

  • Thanks for this recipe. I have been trying to lose weight and the foods I’ve been eating, while good, get boring after awhile. So this recipe will make a great addition to my diet. Enjoy your videos. My first time actually communicating with bona fide celebrity! What part of Texas will u be visiting?

  • Great recipe idea:) We love toasted nuts in our salads (pecans, walnuts, almonds, etc.), and we use our hot air popcorn popper to toast them. We usually toast a bunch at once so we have them on hand for a few days to also snack on.

  • Made this for dinner tonight, it was completely delicious!
    Only subbed the walnuts for some pine nuts, which I had roasted slightly in the pan. Can wholeheartedly recommend it!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  • I was really looking forward to checking this recipe out until I saw the owl on the counter! Owl represents the demonic! Remember everyone (especially the haters), signs and symbols rule! This cooking thing is just a facade!

  • @cheznazi I agree. I am the only person who is trying to eat healthy in my house and my fruits and greens goes badly quicker then I would like. So I just try to not buy a lot of stuff at once.

  • add a little sweetener to your vinegarette if it’s too sour. i just discovered this today while experimenting. store bought vinegarette is very sour for some reason.

  • Dani! Any ideas on how to store fresh herbs like parsley and salad greens so it lasts longer than 1-2 weeks? Keep throwing away fresh produce coz am cooking for 1. Thanks

  • I used to be one of those people who would never touch a salad with fruit in it. I tried a very similar one at 54th street and omg it was so good! I’ve been missing out all these years. I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  • Best Salad Ever!!! I was optimistic until I had one at a restaurant. Now, I’m online looking for the recipe. Dont knock it til u try it!
