Strawberry Fields Forever Salad

Dan Goldberg
Yield Makes 6 servings
Too many ripe strawberries (is there such a thing?) led Jenna Burke to come up with some new uses. This sweet and savory salad is one happy result. Prep Time: 20 minutes.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • 6 large strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
