I current to you my favourite salad ever! When our backyard is producing strawberries, I eat this salad as a lot as I can. I get pleasure from it a lot that I’ve even eaten it for breakfast with eggs on the aspect!
Not solely is that this salad lovely to have a look at, it’s simple to make and children like it too.
Easy Strawberry Feta Salad
This salad got here to be someday after I was impressed by the seasonal offerings of my backyard and our native farmer’s market. I topped recent spinach with sliced strawberries and cucumber and tossed some toasted nuts on prime. I normally use pecans and cashews, however you may actually use no matter you’ve readily available.
When my backyard ran out of recent strawberries and spinach someday, I made the journey to our native farmer’s market and found a brand new vendor promoting do-it-yourself, uncooked, grass-fed cheese. Sure, please! I made a decision to attempt all of the varieties… as a result of cheese!

If you’re the over-achieving sort (like me) and have 5 additional minutes, you possibly can make your personal do-it-yourself salad dressing… possibly a strawberry vinaigrette?
Customizing Your Salad
Salad recipes present an incredible jumping-off level for personalization. For this one, you possibly can in fact use any sort of salad inexperienced or a combination of a number of sorts. When you don’t have any feta readily available, possibly some cubes of mozzarella? Or in the event you like stronger cheeses, some Parmesan or bleu cheese.
The strawberries are fairly important to the recipe, however you possibly can substitute raspberries in a pinch.
