BGR! Eats: Strawberry Salad with Feta

We normally don't post on Sundays and I normally don't cook, but change is inevitable. I tweeted about this recipe (@blackgirlsrun) and received several requests to share on the website. Let me preface this by saying, I really don't cook so you know how easy this is. I'm okay with having veggie dogs for dinner every night, but when I came across this recipe it sounded so delicious I couldn't pass it up. It's super easy to make, it's a great summer BBQ side dish and who can pass up anything with fresh fruit? I do want to warn you that I tried to save the leftovers and it was a complete failure. I suggest making this right before serving. Also, go light on the feta to decrease the calories. Enjoy! Ingredients

10 servings

  • 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


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the almonds, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, prepare the dressing by whisking together the garlic, honey, Dijon mustard, raspberry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the toasted almonds, romaine lettuce, strawberries, and feta cheese. Cover with the dressing mixture, and toss to serve.
