This salad promises the beginning of warmer, brighter days to come. Fresh berries, creamy feta cheese, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette (super easy!) make this a must eat this spring, either as a side salad or a main dish. Just top with some grilled chicken and it’s a full meal!
Also, if you’re not a fan of feta, feel free to switch up the cheese. I actually had a hard time deciding between bleu and feta myself. If you’re just not a soft cheese person at all (gasp!), head on over to that cheese stall at the farmer market and experiment! In any case, whatever cheese you choose, this salad is thrown together in 10 minutes so you have no excuse but to enjoy this fresh bite of spring. Preferably out on the porch, with your feet up and glass of sparkling vino in your hand 🙂Print
