SUMMER SALAD WITH STRAWBERRIES AND FETA WITH BLUEBERRY BALSAMIC DRESSING( part 1)

November 20, 2011 in Salad

There are some foodies who prefer to stay out of the kitchen until they feel like cooking up a storm. My friend, Joey, falls into this category and thoroughly spoils her friends with scrumptious meals when she does cook.

She served this delicious summer salad – full of different types of berries and a tasty dressing. The recipe is from the latest Food and Home magazine.

 

Dressing

45ml olive oil

45ml onion, chopped

125ml balsamic vinegar

15ml sugar

80ml blueberries

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 

Salad

2 baby spring onions, thinly sliced

½ Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced

250ml strawberries

125ml gooseberries

500ml mixed baby salad leaves

80ml feta, crumbled

60ml walnuts

 

For the dressing gently heat the oil and onion together until soft and translucent.

Add the vinegar, sugar and berries and gently reduce for a few minutes.

Season to taste.

 

To make the salad, gently toss all the ingredients together and serve with the dressing on the side.
