Fun Mommy Lunches: Part 3 Strawberry Salad

   This is our final day of Fun Mommy Lunches. Hopefully you have been inspired to change things up at bit a lunch time, rather than eating off your kids plates as you clean up….

  Today, I am sharing Strawberry Salad.  It uses a bottled dressing that I found accidentally one time when I had a coupon off of Marzetti’s dressing.  {Its found in the produce refrigerated section, close to veggie dip.}  Its called Strawberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette.  I know there are lots of homemade versions of this online, but I need lunch to be fast.  I think this already made version tastes AMAZING!

  Oh, and if you don’t like Feta cheese, just use a goat cheese.  It has less flavor, but will still add the element you are wanting from these cheese crumbles.

  • 3 Tablespoons Feta Cheese, Or Goat Cheese, Crumbled

  • 4 whole Strawberries, Sliced
  • Marzetti’s Strawberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette

Preparation Instructions

Wash, dry and rip lettuce into bite sized pieces. Wash and cube cucumber, red pepper and strawberries. {I try to get these all done ahead of time, so that each day for lunch, they are already ready to go.}
On a bed of lettuce, sprinkle veggies of your choice. Next, lay slices of cold grilled meat, if using, and strawberry slices. Then, sprinkle with feta cheese crumbles.
Drizzle with Strawberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette and enjoy your easy and tasty lunch!
