Strawberry Pecan Salad combines the coolness of strawberries, feta, and mixed greens to compliment many meals. Toasted pecans top off this vegetarian treat!
Strawberry Pecan Salad is a nice accompaniment to grilled chicken, pork tenderloin, or savory filet mignon. It's also a healthy alternative to heavier sides, and can stand alone as a vegetarian entree.
But, I think my favorite part of this dish is the luscious dressing made from ingredients in the salad itself. A blender (ad) full of strawberries, pecans and feta with olive oil, vinegar and sugar creates the most delicious salad dressing I've ever tasted. Oh my...it's amazing!
Step by Step Instructions
- Wash and dry romaine lettuce, tear into bite size pieces.
- Place lettuce in a large serving bowl and add mixed greens. Toss.
- Slice strawberries and arrange in middle of the bed of lettuce.
- Sprinkle feta on top of strawberries.
- Add pecans to greens on both sides of strawberries.
