Strawberry Salad

I like to make a few nice salads every week to ensure my family is getting a lot of fresh, raw veggies in their diet as well as nuts, good fats, and other things we might add to our salads. Strawberry Salad is one of our go-to salads! I always have these ingredients on hand, but you can make it your own and add the veggies your family likes or that you have on hand. I like to prepare individual bowls of salad {rather than a large bowl of salad} so that everyone gets lots of goodies with their lettuce.

Strawberry Salad

To keep this salad as healthy as possible, top it with a simple dressing that you make at home. You can also just drizzle a little Extra-Virgin Olive Oil or some balsamic vinegar on top of your salad. A fruity balsamic vinegar will also pair very nicely with this salad!

Ingredients

  • Spring Mix
  • Strawberries, chopped
  • English Cucumber, chopped
  • Red onion, very thinly sliced
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Sliced almonds, toasted
  • Dressing of your choice
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions

  • You will notice that I have not given quantity amounts for the ingredients. Just throw some lettuce in your bowl and add as much or as little of each ingredient as you would like. This is meant to be simple & quick.
  • Once you have built your salad, top it with a dressing, oil, or vinegar and then finish it with a little fresh, ground pepper and a good salt.

Honey Balsamic Dressing

This dressing pairs very nicely with the Strawberry Salad. For a large soup-bowl size of salad, I usually add 1-2 teaspoons of this dressing – you don’t need a lot of it!
TIP: Use local raw honey for added health benefits!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/8 rounded teaspoon pink salt

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or mason jar.
  2. Mix well.
  3. If you have extra dressing, it can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for a month or more. Just allow it to come to room temperature before you use it again. I often double this recipe so I do have leftovers which saves me time the next time I make a salad.
