This salad is an extraordinary combination of ingredients that wouldn't seem to go together: feta, strawberries and almonds.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 (small) shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, preferably Banyuls
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 12 cups (about 6 ounces) assorted baby lettuces
  • 1 quart strawberries, hulled—small berries halved, large ones quartered
  • 4 ounces (1 cup) feta, preferably French, crumbled
  • 1 cup smoked almonds, chopped

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the mustard, honey, shallot and vinegar. Stir in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Put the lettuces in a large bowl. Add the strawberries, feta and almonds. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, toss well and serve.
