Strawberry Summer Salad

While I may be a little ahead of myself since today is the first day of Spring and not Summer, I was able to find some delicious strawberries at Trader Joe's this week.  Here is a yummy salad with strawberries, mixed greens and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing!

Prep time:  10 minutes
Level:  Easy

1/2 box of mixed green salad (I like Olivia's, but any mixed greens, will do)
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, reduced fat
1 cup strawberries, sliced
2 TBSP walnuts

Dressing:

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar (I like white as it is a little sweeter and a little less sour than the traditional Balsamic vinegar)
1-2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 tsp. sugar (optional)
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)

1.  Place mixed greens (which are probably pre-washed) in a large bowl.
2.  Add sliced strawberries and feta to greens
3.  In a separate bowl, mix dressing ingredients and whisk until well blended.
4.  Add desired amount of dressing to the salad and stir.

Enjoy!

Makes 2-3 servings.
