Strawberry and Feta Salad

1 cup slivered almonds
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
· In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the almonds, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and set aside. (You can also put butter in the skillet and about 2 Tbsp. of white granulated sugar as you cook the almonds for a sweet addition.)
· In a bowl, prepare the dressing by whisking together the garlic, honey, Dijon mustard, raspberry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil. *I often use only 2/3 C of oil so add smaller portions until desired taste and consistency*
· In a large bowl, toss together the toasted almonds, romaine lettuce, strawberries, and feta cheese. Cover with the dressing mixture, and toss to serve.

  1. I have made this twice now and forgot to take pictures both times. I'll definitely be making this again, but if you do before me, feel free to add a pic.

    I think romaine lettuce and the dressing are two things that make this recipe particularly unique.

  2. I will make this for certain!

  3. Sounds yummy! I love strawberries in salads!

  4. This sounds fabulous! I love salads with strawberries, feta cheese, almonds and romane lettuce!! Thanks Marijke!

  5. Annalisa, this is the same dressing I used for the salad tonight at Addie's party. It makes a lot! I guess you could call it a Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette.

  6. Oh yay! I was going to ask you last night if I could get the recipe... it was such a yummy dressing!
