Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Yummy tasting salad. The dressing matches all the ingredients in the salad exceptionally well. Used feta instead of goat cheese as well as using arugula because that's what I had on hand. Also added thinly sliced red onion because my husband enjoys it that way. All in the family really enjoyed this salad and it's a do again, especially perfect for Spring and Summer! Thank you Teresa for sharing!

Daily Inspiration

A very delicious salad and just in time for strawberry season (although they are available year round). Makes a very pretty presentation. The only change I made to the salad itself was to eliminate the cucumber. The dressing was really delish -- I did use less basil and I lessened the amount of oil and sugar a tiny bit.
