This salad is incredible! I got the recipe from my Mom last Spring and have made it a lot since! It has become a favorite! It is super easy for me to throw together, and it really compliments simple dinners of grilled chicken, fish or roast/steak. I almost always have spinach and strawberries in my fridge this time of year, and I keep pine nuts and feta in my freezer. The dressing is very refreshing and zangy with the lemon. I just love this salad–and every time I serve it I get requests for the recipe. Give it a try –you won’t be disappointed!!
PS If you are not a feta cheese fan–try substituting diced avocado.
