What a great combination! Even your pickiest salad naysayers should enjoy this salad, with its sweet and tangy dressing and delightful combination of ingredients!
Ingredients
  • For the salad:
  • Big bowlful of spring lettuces: washed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 1 apple, cored, sliced and cubed
  • ¾ cup pecans, lightly toasted*
  • ½ cup sliced spring onions
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • And for the dressing:
  • ⅓ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 T raw honey
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ⅔ cup good olive oil
Instructions
  1. Toss lettuces with other salad ingredients, except for nuts and cheese.
  2. Mix dressing ingredients together in a jar with a lid, and shake until combined.
  3. Pour dressing on top of salad and toss.
  4. Sprinkle with pecans and feta. Take a picture. Sneak a bit for a taste. :)
  5. There will be dressing left over, and it will stay fresh in your refrig for a long time. It's also good as a marinade on chicken!
  6. *To toast the pecans: saute gently in a cast iron skillet on medium heat, until they start to smell delicious, and brown just a little. Be careful not to burn them! (I usually do: when I made this recently, little Mack looked at it in dismay: "Burned nuts in salad??")
