I really try to use foods that are in season. Well, my favorite berry farm, Trapani Farm, finally showed up at the local farmer’s market that me and Mark started years back. Anyway, I made SURE I was there early before they sold out. Here is my creation using strawberries in a whole new light. I served it over a bed of locally grown kale to make the perfect summer salad.
Strawberry Feta Salad
4 cups (1 quart) fresh strawberries hulled and sliced
½ cup feta cheese crumbled
½ cup chopped red onion
¼ white balsamic vinegar (dark balsamic will spoil the color)
½ cup toasted and chopped pistachios
salt and pepper to taste
1. Toast pistachios in a drizzle of olive oil until brown then set aside to cool.
2. Mix remaining ingredients in bowl.
3. Combine cooled pistachios with olive oil into salad. Allow to sit for one hour before serving over bed of greens.
