Strawberry and Feta Salad

Strawberry Feta Salad Recipe

I present to you my favorite salad ever! While our garden is (somehow) still producing strawberries, I’ve been eating this salad as much as I can! I’ve even eaten this for breakfast with eggs on the side. Sometimes, I add grilled chicken and it is an entire meal.

Strawberry Feta Salad Recipe

This strawberry and feta salad combines sweet and tangy flavors with the crunch of cashews and pecans for a balanced and fresh meal.

This salad came to be one day when I was inspired by the seasonal offerings of my garden and our local farmers market, and has made an appearance almost every day since. When my garden ran out of fresh strawberries and spinach one day, I made the trip to our local farmers market and discovered a new vendor selling homemade, raw, grass-fed cheese. Yes please!

I bought all the flavors… because cheese!… but hadn’t used feta much before and wasn’t sure of the best way to use it. When it doubt, throw it on a salad. So I did, and it was delicious.

If you are the over-achieving type and have five extra minutes, you could make a homemade salad dressing to go on this salad… maybe a strawberry vinaigrette?

If this salad isn’t your thing, consider trying one of my other salad recipes like this citrus chicken salad.

And of course, you could substitute any lettuce of green for the spinach and any cheese for the feta if you don’t have those on hand. The strawberries are pretty vital to the recipe though, but raspberries could work in a pinch 🙂
