My garden is about to explode with a harvest of sweet strawberries and I’m always tempted to the the kids over to the pick-your-own farm to get even more. Here’s a round up of some dynamite strawberry recipes, starting with a simple salad.
Strawberry Salad with Feta
Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are a match made in culinary heaven, a sprinkle of tangy feta cheese makes this salad even more outrageous. To make a complete meal, top with grilled chicken, steak or salmon.
3 cups lettuce (spring mix or arugula recommended)
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinaigrette
Combine lettuce, strawberries and feta, toss gently. Season with black pepper to taste and add dressing; toss again and serve.
