This Strawberry & Feta Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette is the perfect summer meal. It’s fresh and light with tangy feta and citrus flavors, sweet strawberries and crunchy toasted walnuts.
If you aren’t a salad eater, this Strawberry & Feta Salad will change your mind. It seems like it was maybe 10 or 12 years ago when salads got a makeover. Where there used to be few options, like Caesar, Ranch or Italian, there are now so many salad options, you could eat a different way every day for a month and not get bored.
This salad fits all of my requirements for the best salad. It’s got sweet strawberries, crunchy walnuts, tangy Feta, creamy avocado and a slightly sweet Citrus & Herb Vinaigrette. Plus it’s topped with this ultra flavorful and juicy Citrus Chicken that I shared yesterday.
But the Citrus Vinaigrette might be my very favorite part of this salad. It’s similar to the marinade for the chicken, with a few extras added in. Three types of citrus – lemon, orange and lime – plus olive oil, a little honey, and herbs like basil or parsley.
Then toss all of that deliciousness together and enjoy!
