Summer Salad with Strawberries {recipe}

Summer Salad with Strawberries


Summer weather is finally here in Michigan, and the first few weeks in June signal strawberry season! Normally eaten plain or in one of many desserts, they also pair beautifully with a bed of greens. I’ve craved this salad since getting my first taste of it when Jodi from JodiMichelle made it for lunch at a get together last summer. It combines the sweet flavor of strawberries, the crunch of soaked and dehydrated nuts, creaminess and tangy taste of goat cheese all with a healthy dressing and plenty of greens.
