Strawberry and feta salad is a mix of sweet, sour, salty and creamy gustation. It is a delicious summer salad that treats the taste buds. I like how the different flavors compliment the crisp lettuce and crunchy cucumbers. For this recipe we used almonds, but walnuts are good replacements as well.
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 olive oil
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 medium sized cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
Place a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Lightly toast the almonds in the skillet, around 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Next, prepare the dressing by combining the garlic, honey, raspberry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, olive oil and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl. Whisk until the sugar granules melt.
Combine the romaine lettuce, cucumbers, strawberries, feta cheese, garlic and toasted almonds in a large salad bowl. Drizzle it with the dressing. Gently toss before serving. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
