Balsamic Strawberry Salad

on July 16, 2015

I was an adult for a long time before I had a salad with anything besides tomato, celery, cuke, etc., but modern creative cooking has really enhanced what used to be a fairly ordinary dish. Be creative with salad, and you can whip up an attractive meal or side dish with very little effort.

This is really a light and lovely salad, and truly delicious! Easy to make, and raspberries, blueberries, blackberries are good additions as well, though I like the texture of strawberries not yet at peak ripeness best in salads.

Assemble from mixed salad greens, leaf or butter lettuce, rocket, baby spinach as the best choices.

Toss salad greens in a large bowl with your favorite balsamic vinegar & oil dressing (just enough to coat), Salt & pepper to taste. Plate the dressed greens: add quartered strawberries, some crumbled feta or blue cheese, and top with sliced or blanched almonds, or walnuts.

Non-cooks can impress with this colorful, tasty, and healthy, salad. Grilled chicken or salmon along side makes the meal.
