Recipe of the Month - June 2011


There are many colors in this salad. Red from the strawberries, white from the feta
cheese, and green from the lettuce. The strawberries sweeten this salad and the red
onions add heat.

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 cups romaine lettuce, washed and cut into thin slices
½ cucumber, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
½ cup kalamata olives
½ cup feta cheese
1 cup sliced strawberries

In a large serving bowl, add the balsamic vinegar. Gradually whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the romaine lettuce, cucumber, red onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and strawberries. Toss to combine.
Serves 4.
