Strawberry and Feta Salad

Strawberry and Feta Salad

I was looking for a really good summer salad and I came across a few different recipes that all looked really good. This was the first one. I would never think to put fruit in my salad and I typically don't like them together, but this salad was just the perfect blend. The dressing adds just a hint of tang which makes it irresistible!

1 cup slivered almonds
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese

In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the almonds, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted. 
Remove from heat, and set aside.

In a bowl, prepare the dressing by whisking together the garlic, honey, Dijon mustard, raspberry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil.

In a large bowl, toss together the toasted almonds, romaine lettuce, strawberries, and feta cheese. 
Cover with the dressing mixture, and toss to serve!



  1. Delicious. I did uses only one clove of garlic and half the oil. Great addition to an Easter brunch spread.
