I grew up having this salad every summer as a kid and now I have it on repeat in the summer months! 🍓

My Summer Strawberry Romaine Salad is super refreshing and very simple to make.

I love buying local summer strawberries as they are packed with sweet flavour and are so incredibly good for you. The sliced almonds add the perfect crunch when paired with the smooth velvety goat cheese. You can on it the goat cheese to make vegan.

You only need a few Ingredients so let’s get started.

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Strawberries – preferably locally sourced in the summer months
  • English Cucumber 
  • Goat Cheese
  • Sliced Almonds or Pine Nuts
  • Fresh Basil
  • Dressing:
  • Raspberry Vinegar either balsamic or regular white
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Dijon Mustard or Dry Mustard
  • Sea salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Maple Syrup
