strawberry, feta and toasted almond salad.
I’m the dessert and salad girl.
Seems kind of funny now that I think about it, kind of ironic since the two are on such opposite ends of the culinary spectrum. But there are reasons for this title…
2. I have an easy, frugal secret for great salads. Shhhh…I’m about to share it with you.
Did I just totally rock your world?
I’ll use just about any combination of these three to make a mean salad – goat, feta, asiago, or gorgonzola cheeses…apples, pear, berries, dried cranberries…toasted walnuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios.
It’s like a magical salad trifecta.
It’s as easy as can be, and making it yourself will save you tons. Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a little honey, salt and pepper. That’s your foundation, and if you’re in the mood you can toss in some herbs, garlic, maybe a little dijon.
Strawberry, Feta and Toasted Almond Salad

3 cups chopped romaine or green leaf lettuce
8-10 strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup toasted almonds
1/4 cup crumbled feta
Prepare the dressing by combining all ingredients in a mason jar with a lid, shaking vigorously. Alternatively, you could combine in a blender.
