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.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Leaf Lettuce, Romaine Or Combo, Ripped Into Small Pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons Feta Cheese, Or Goat Cheese, Crumbled
  • 5 strips Grilled Chicken Or Steak {its Good Meatless, Too}

  • 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!

  1. Oh Yummy!My sister and I have been looking for a good strawberry salad! I so going to try this one out. The dressing alone sounds wonderful!:)
    Oh, I have to tell you. Last night I went onto your tastykitchen recipes and was looking for a pork chop recipe. I found the all in one casserole one! Oh.MAN! That was sooo good. Even hubby kept telling me how much he liked it! I am totally printing it off and putting it in y folder to make again! Wow! Pork chops are a hard one to get to stay nice and tender and this was a GREAT recipe for it.:) Thanks for putting it up there.:)

  2. Those berries look delicious but this salad really gives you a beautiful presentation!
    I want mine with the grilled chicken!!

  3. Yummy! I recently discovered that I am allergic to strawberries… which is a heartache for me. By far my favorite late spring/early summer fruit. AND I can buy them from local farms where they are being picked daily… or I can pick them myself… but not anymore. That salad looks good enough to eat… maybe with red flame grapes cut in half?
