When I was a little girl, my favorite dessert was strawberries with sugar. So simple, and so yummy! I remember how I used to wait for the second I would get a big bowl of this delicacy and how I finished it within seconds. Although I avoid the extra sugar today, my love for strawberries is stronger than ever 🙂
The prices for strawberries finally started dropping, and I decided that it's a good enough reason to share this recipe for the perfect salad you can make in a matter of minutes, with the strawberries as the leading act. It may seem weird to you to mix strawberries in salad – but trust me – it comes out beyond perfect! The combination of fresh green leaves, avocado and strawberries is wonderful… A touch of a red onions adds a gentle spiciness and the nuts give it crunchiness and depth in flavors that leave you wanting more.
I combined this salad with a simple and healthy dressing that just adds to the whole celebration, and sometimes I add feta cheese – even though the vegan version is amazing as is.
After you make yourself this salad I'm sure you'll love it so much that you'll make it for all your gatherings with friends – so if you're planning on making it for a picnic (perfect!), brunch with friends or even for Friday night dinner – don't forget to add the dressing right before serving it so it doesn't get mushy and lose its beauty 🙂
All that's left is to wait for deals of double packs of strawberries for 10 shekels and start freezing the strawberries for summer smoothies! 😉
