There’s nothing quite as delectable as fresh, organic strawberries in season.
So in this recipe, the strawberries are the main flavor focal point.
They are substantial enough on their own to pair perfectly with a basic bed of mixed greens topped with a light drizzle of good olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.
Topping this salad with pecans and vegan feta cheese provides just enough punch to elevate this combination to special treat status.
