Creamy Strawberry Kiwi Salad

I have one humdinger of a recipe for you today! Creamy Strawberry Kiwi Salad is such a fun summer recipe. This salad has a sweet cream cheese base tossed with lots of strawberries and kiwis. Then it’s sprinkled with brown sugar, finely diced pecans, additional strawberries and kiwis before serving.

When I made my Creamy Blackberry Salad a few weeks ago, I thought this luscious recipe would also be just as delicious with strawberries and kiwis. This one turned out just as scrumptious. In fact, it’s the perfect salad as we head into the busy summer season. You can make it for any of the upcoming holidays like Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day. But it’s so good you may want to try it out for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day family gatherings as well! And don’t forget to take it to potlucks or backyard barbecues!

I’ve tried kiwis and strawberries before in tossed salad and they work extremely well. I thought I’d give the combo a try when I was thinking of ideas for tasty recipes to make for a gal in our church who just underwent hip replacement surgery. Even though I loved this salad, I was grateful to hear that they also enjoyed all the goodies I brought them for that meal. It was the perfect salad to go along with Chicken Stroganoff, a loaf of homemade bread and the BEST Strawberry Cake ever!

If you’re needing a terrific recipe to wow company, or you just have an abundance of strawberries on your hands, this is a delicious way to use them. While Creamy Strawberry Kiwi Salad is gluten free, it’s such a delectable recipe you won’t feel like your missing out on anything other folks are eating. Plus, you’ll probably feel like you’re eating dessert rather than salad! Yes, this salad is irresistible. 🙂
