Strawberry and Feta Salad
Salads are one of my favorite lunch or dinner options. I especially love ones that balance sweet and salty. The combination of sweet strawberries with briny feta, salty sunflower seeds, and herbaceous hints of basil make for a salad that truly impresses. If you’re interested in making this salad as an entree, top it with some grilled chicken or steak.
Recipe: Strawberry & Feta Salad
Prep Time: 10 minutes Serves: 4
2 tablespoons champagne or white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 head or bag of romain lettuce
2 tablespoons basil, chopped
1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
Crumbled feta, to taste
6 strawberries, sliced
In a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve. In a large salad bowl, combine salad fixings. Top with dressing. Don’t add all of the dressing at once. Add 2/3 and then add a bit more at a time, so it fits your taste.
