Summer Strawberry Salad

Summersalad

With all the cold weather we've been having, you'd hardly know it is June.  While I'm looking forward to warm summer nights in our backyard, I've been content to spend the evenings inside lately — listening to the rain fall and eating impressive quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables.  I'll get back to my stories from Buenos Aires soon, but first I wanted to share this pretty salad with you.

Summer Strawberry Salad

Ingredients

Greens, rinsed and spun dry
Strawberries, rinsed
Salty hard cheese (like Parmesan or Pecorino Romano)
Good Balsamic vinegar* 
Method

To make a salad for one, add a few handfuls of your greens to a large bowl.  Slice in a few fresh strawberries and drizzle with Balsamic vinegar (about a tablespoon, you can add some sugar or oil to cut the flavor if you prefer).  Toss together. Shave a few thin pieces of cheese over the top and enjoy.
*(I'm obsessed with the fig Balsamic vinegar from Old Town Oil)

Jen - One of my favorite summer salads is very similar to this. Sub feta for the hard cheese and balsamic glaze for straight vinegar. Sometimes we add chopped vegan bacon too. Yum.

Kaitlyn - I have a surplus of strawberries in my fridge, this would make great use out of them! Plus, that fig balsamic vinegar sounds delicious.

Nishta - I am obsessed with fig balsamic vinegar, too! one of my favorite things to do with it is halve figs, brown them a bit in a pan with a little butter, then deglaze the pan with the balsamic and let it get syrupy. put it all over vanilla ice cream–yum, yum, yum.
I recently posted about a strawberry salad myself, but with some pecans & blue cheese. strawberries are so beautiful right now, I can’t resist putting them in everything!

Shannalee - Yum, and I love how simple the list of ingredients (and instructions) is. Perfect summer salad.
