Strawberry salad!

June 12, 2010 at 8:28 pm 3 comments

A quick post to point you in the direction of my strawberry salad recipe. It’s strawberry season again and enjoying the ripe red fruit in a delicious salad is a rite of summer for me. I found beautiful BC-grown organic strawberries for sale at the corner store on our street this week and I’ve been blissfully eating my way through a big basket for the past two days.

I’ve updated the original recipe to include mint and chopped green onions along with the salad greens, strawberries and goat cheese. Those herbs combined with the creamy cheese and the juicy sweetness of the strawberries is a magical pairing.

Happy strawberry finding and salad eating!

    I just picked a quart of strawberries from my back-yard patch. And noticed that my mint is getting out of control again. Now all I need is some goat cheese!

    This looks delicious!

    There is nothing like locally grown berries! They are completely unlike those cardboard strawberries that ripen on a truck.
    I picked up some strawberries just this morning! I saw a recipe for strawberry and goat cheese bruschetta in the Globe and Mail that I wanted to try, but I salad sounds good as well.

    This salad looks amazing, and I truly can’t resist anything with the bright shine of a ripe strawberry. Add in goat cheese and I am hopelessly in love. 🙂
