Spring Green Salad with Strawberries and Feta

Spring Green Salad with Strawberries and Feta

Sharing is caring!

A wonderful, refreshing, green salad with a variety of fresh, seasonal vegetables and fresh strawberries.

This salad is a wonderful combination of peppery rocket, baby spinach and mild lettuce together with salty feta, which are well balanced with the sweet and sour vinaigrette.

The vinaigrette is made with strawberry sauce (I used some of the strawberry sauce I made for the Strawberry Cake), but you can make the sauce in no time), with extra virgin olive oil,  balsamic vinegar, and a hint of garlic.

Combined with fresh strawberries, aromatic mint and crunchy roasted almonds, this salad will intrigue even the most demanding palettes.

Variation of this Green Salad

What other variations can I make with this green salad?

Say that it is not Spring and strawberries are out of season. What other fruit can I use?

Good question.

I love this salad so I make it year around.

During summer, I like it with stone fruit, especially peaches (or apricots). I halve a peach, remove the stone and in the cavity I add a knob of butter. I bake the halves until soft, for about 20 minutes or until soft. I cut them into slices and use two in the vinaigrette and the remaining to decorate on top. Instead of feta, I fry some halloumi and toast some walnuts.

I also love this salad with figs.

During Fall (autumn), I add some pomegranate arils and in the vinaigrette I add some pomegranate syrup. If you don’t have any, you can add some honey.

We can also add some grapes, whatever variety you like, so long as they are sweet.

I have planted a vine I brought from Cyprus with Veriko grapes, which are wonderful in this salad.

During winter, I like to add some orange supremes (orange slices without membrane or pith).
