Mixed Greens with Strawberries, Extra Sharp White Cheddar, and Candied Pecans with a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

by Pam on July 23, 2013

While eating lunch this past weekend, my husband discovered that fresh strawberries and with extra sharp white cheddar tasted really great together. We were heading to a friend’s house for dinner and I was in charge of bringing a salad. I decided to make a summery salad using strawberries and the extra sharp cheddar along with mixed greens, romaine lettuce, cucumber, and candied pecans. I served the salad with a homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette[1]. This salad was a huge hit and even our friend’s kids who don’t like salads ate theirs. I love that!

Place the mixed greens and romaine lettuce into a large serving bowl. Add the sliced strawberries and diced cucumber along with the candied pecans and extra sharp cheddar shavings. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve the salad with the vinaigrette drizzled on top. Enjoy.
