Scrumptious Summer Salad with Strawberries

I love to add fruit to my salads - it adds a level of sweetness, texture and depth to the standard salad we eat every day.   I made this salad tonight for dinner with a red wine vinegar and Major Gray Chutney vinaigrette.   I could NOT stop eating it... enjoy!

Summer Salad with Strawberries

Ingredients:
  • Bib lettuce, washed and dried and torn into bite sized pieces
  • Baby Spinach, washed and dried
  • 8 Strawberries, washed and sliced thin
  • 1 Avocado, diced
  • 1/3 C Walnut pieces
  • Parmesan shavings
  • Pepper


Directions:   After washing and drying lettuce, tear it up into bite sized pieces and add to salad bowl.   Slice strawberries and avocado and add to bowl.   I like my walnuts in smaller pieces so I rough chop them and add to the bowl.   Add Parmesan shavings and pepper to taste.

Vinaigrette:
  • 1/3 C red wine vinegar
  • 4 T Major Grays Chutney
  • 3 T olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Whisk your ingredients together and toss into your salad and serve!!!
