Nothing says spring freshness like a salad, but adding some fruit to your salad really takes the freshness to a whole new level. There are plenty of salad recipes, and then there are little slices of heaven.
This strawberry, avocado, and cashew salad recipe is just what you need to put the freshness in your spring.
For this spring salad recipe you will need:
- lettuce, the more varied the mix of lettuces, the better!
- 1 pound strawberries cut into small slices
- 2 ripe avocados, cubed
- 1 cup cashews, whole or halves
- 6 ounces swiss cheese, cut into small pieces
- poppyseed dressing
Here’s how to put this perfect salad together:
Mix lettuces together. I like to use a combination of spring mix and romaine. Prepare all other ingredients except dressing. If serving within 30 minutes, mix. If it will be longer than 30 minutes before serving, keep ingredients separate to keep things from getting soggy. Mix when there are 30 minutes or less. Then, drizzle with poppyseed dressing and serve.
The great thing about this salad is that it looks and tastes so complex, but it really is so simple. The mixture of vegetables and fruit, the saltiness of the cashews, the tartness of the cheese, and the tang of the poppyseed dressing is truly spectacular.
We have eaten this salad for a brunch, lunch, or simple dinner on a warm, summer night.
