This Strawberry and Avocado Salad is definitely what I would consider “crave-worthy”. I was thinking about it long after I ate it and wished I had more waiting for me in the fridge. There are so many interesting textures and flavours with the addition of fresh veggies, strawberries, avocado, feta cheese and toasted nuts. Litehouse® Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing & Dip is the perfect finishing touch.
And did I mention how easy it is to make? I used a bag of Fresh Express® Sweet Butter Crunchy Blends which saved me time cleaning and chopping lettuce. I love the convenience!
If you haven’t added strawberries yet to your salad, you NEED to try it! They actually blend really well with all the ingredients. Nature Sweet® Cherub Tomatoes add an extra burst of juicy sweetness, as well.
I find the avocados taste best have they have softened a bit. They are always hard when I buy them at the local grocery store. I leave them sit on the counter a few days until they are a bit softer. Their creamy texture is amazing!
Toasting the almonds and pistachios is recommended, but if you are short on time, you can skip it and put them in as is. I just love the toasty flavour they bring.
Litehouse® Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing & Dip is actually one of my favourite Litehouse® salad dressings. It’s super creamy and makes this salad taste even more delicious! I’ve been known to even put it in sandwiches instead of mayonnaise. Tip: try it in egg salad – yum!
Make this salad to go with your main course or serve it for lunch. I find it filling because it’s packed with so much good stuff!
Next time you need to get groceries, grab the ingredients and give it a try. My family loved it and I hope your family does, too!
