Strawberry and feta salad – perfect for summer

Sharing is caring!

Strawberry and feta salad is a beautiful flavour combination, this wonderful salad is super simple to make and perfect for serving throughout summer.

We just love strawberry season and can’t get enough of plump juicy sweet strawberries.

Strawberry and feta salad is a delicious light summer recipe and a really tasty way to include strawberries in a savoury dish.

The sharp peppery flavour of rocket and watercress in the salad makes the strawberries taste even sweeter and the feta cheese adds a tangy salty flavoursome bite.

This is a totally gorgeous summer salad and one I just love to make mainly because it just looks so pretty!

Strawberry and Feta Salad Ingredients

  • 150g bag of mixed salad leaves – choose a mix with rocket, watercress and spinach – it’s just perfect with strawberries.
  • 200g strawberries – pick big juicy, ripe berries and sliced them into quarters.
  • 60g feta cheese – crumbled
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper to season

Strawberry and Feta Salad Recipe

  • Firstly take a large serving platter – a large plate or a bowl will be just fine.
  • Next scatter over the salad leaves making sure there’s a good mix of leaves well distributed over the platter. I also like to scatter over a little torn Basil too, it just tastes perfect with the strawberries.

  • Next scatter over the strawberry quarters – mingling them in with the salad leaves.
  • Then simply crumble over the feta cheese.
  • Next mix up a simple strawberry salad dressing – add the olive oil and the Balsamic vinegar to a cup or small bottle.
  • Season with a little sea salt and cracked black pepper and whisk well (cover the lid and shake if using a bottle)
  • Just before serving drizzle the dressing over the salad and eat.

Make strawberry salad your way…

  • You could easily use raspberries in place of strawberries they work really well flavour wise with the feta cheese.
  • If you like your salad with spice then simply add a touch of heat with a pinch of chilli flakes or even some freshly chopped chillies.
  • When I add chillies to this I blister the skins first on the hob. Then pop them into a small bowl covered in clingfilm and leave them to steam. Next, scrape the skins and chop the chilli flesh. It’s delicious!
  • It’s really easy to switch the watercress and rocket salad for baby leaf salad or a Bistro mix with raw shredded beets.

Salad toppings that go really well with this summery strawberry salad

Sometimes I like my salad with added crunch and interest so I add a few salad toppings – toppings that you could try that work well with this salad are…

  • pan toasted pine nuts
  • roughly chopped walnuts
  • crunchy little homemade croutons

What to serve with strawberry and feta salad

Our salad is perfect as a light easy lunch, served with some crusty bread and a glass of something sparkling.

However, it also tastes great alongside grilled chicken or salmon.
