Easy Summer Strawberry Salad

What’s better on a hot summer day than a nice salad? We have a great affinity to salads because they’re so easy to create whatever you’re in the mood for by using what you have in your fridge. This creation is Ali’s go-to and when Cassie visited one hot summer day, she was sold. The tangy feta with the sweet strawberries is the perfect balance, and let’s not forget the depth the red onions bring to the table.

It’s so easy to customize to your liking; we love adding some bacon or candied pecans add the perfect crunch and sweetness. Whatever your heart’s content, this salad has something for you. The best part? It’s so easy to throw together, no cooking over the hot stove, just reach in your fridge and pull out your ingredients.

Tools Needed

Salad Bowl

A sturdy, large salad bowl is a must. We love this one that is cute and comes with everything you need to create the perfect salad. Made from bamboo, this salad bowl is sure to last you for years to come for $28.99.

Measuring Spoons

We will keep saying this over and over. We LOVE our magnetic measuring spoons. They are so easy to keep track of, and they nest together perfectly without taking up unnecessary space.

Knives

These knives are by far our favorite summer knives. They are sharp, sturdy, and so great at home and at the park. If you are anything like us, summer means we are eating on the run. These knives have blade guards so you can literally throw them in your picnic bag and go.

Over the Sink Strainer

Cassie got an over the sink strainer about 2 years ago and will never go back. You can wash anything you need and just leave it there to drain into the sink without making a mess all over. This stainer is perfect for washing the lettuce and strawberries in this yummy salad.
