Mixed Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

This Mixed Baby Greens Salad pairs fresh greens with sweet strawberries, creating a tasty blend of flavors.

The salad is dressed in a homemade strawberry balsamic vinaigrette, which adds a tangy, fruity finish. Topped with crunchy nuts and creamy goat cheese, it’s perfect as a refreshing starter or a light main dish.

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette


  • 1 cup strawberries, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T honey
  • ½ c extra-virgin olive oil or walnut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Blend the strawberries, vinegar, and honey in a high-speed blender. While running, slowly drizzle in olive oil until the dressing is smooth and emulsified. Salt and pepper to taste.

Use the dressing with the salad that follows.
