Berry & Bacon Walnut Salad - and a giveaway!

Courtesy of their Blogger Outreach Program, OXO sent me a free "Good Grips" green salad spinner and also sent me an extra one to giveaway to one lucky reader!  Thank you OXO :)

 This is what OXO has to say about their new salad spinner:  
For fun and easy salad preparation, try the OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner, now available in green. Simply press the soft, non-slip knob to start the basket spinning. Easy, one-handed operation makes this Spinner a pleasure to use, and a built-in brake stops the Salad Spinner so you can unload it. A non-slip ring keeps the bowl steady on the countertop, and the basket and bowl can be used separately.

There are multiple ways to win!  Make sure to check them out below:

1) Leave a comment on this blog about your favorite thing about spring (or any nice comment will do!)

2) Like my Facebook page (if you haven't already) and leave a comment on the Facebook page!

3) Follow me on twitter (yes, I caved and created a twitter account…my handle is @maedeforyou)

4) Post about this giveaway and recipe on your blog or Facebook page and link it back to me!

You will be entered once for each method you choose!  Winners will be selected randomly (using a lifeless random number generator) and announced on Friday, April 6th, 2012.  I will ship the salad spinner to the winner for free within the U.S.

Good luck!

That salad looks amazing!! I love spring because we can get outside and not be miserable in the humid Kansas summer. And I love the light foods like this!

I love spinach salad with walnuts, but haven't tried it with bacon and strawberries! I always look forward to seeing your next recipe and blog! I have a salad spinner, so it will be a blessing to someone who doesn't have one! I posted it on my facebook to encourage others to visit your blog.

I have never used a salad spinner. Josie, I'm so excited to try out more of your recipes! They are all so good! I love spring, especially here in Bloomington, IN, because I've never seen such beautiful flowering trees and the HUGE farmer's market is outside again! Now I can use locally grown fruits and veggies in your recipes!
