Ask most stay-at-home moms like me about what they eat at lunchtime and you're going to get some really pathetic answers. It is often so much easier to skip or eat random things from the fridge or pantry.

This week I decided to treat myself to a delicious homemade salad and it came together so quickly and easily I wondered why I don't do this more often??

As we head towards summer vacation, this would be a perfect salad recipe to keep as a meal kit in your fridge.

Why This is the Best Recipe

When you're looking to upgrade your lunch routine, this is the best strawberry feta salad recipe because:

  1. Easy to Scale: My recipe is written for one single entree salad you can enjoy for lunch. Want to serve it for a party? You can easily scale it up to the size you need by just adding more of the ingredients!
  2. Fridge Salad Kit: You can prep all the ingredients and store them in the fridge for easy-to-assemble lunches or dinner sides all week.
  3. Easy Protein Add-Ons: Want to make this an entire meal? This recipe pairs so well with chicken, shrimp, or salmon.

Ingredients

To make this easy salad, all you need to have is:

The ingredients to make the salad are on the counter.
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Salad Greens: I used 50-50 mix of spring greens and baby spinach. This would taste great with arugula, too. Romaine, iceburg, or any salad mix will do.
  • Fresh Parsley: This adds a big burst of flavor to the salad. If you're serving it for a party, it is absolutely worth the upgrade.
  • Feta Cheese Crumbles
  • Chopped Walnuts: You could use chopped pistachios or almonds if you prefer.
  • Pickled Red Onions: You could buy a jar at the store, but making homemade pickled red onion only takes 3 ingredients and 15 minutes.
  • Olive Oil

Layer the Salad

Start the salad with your base of lettuce and greens.

A bed of mixed spring greens and baby spinach on a plate.

Wash and slice the strawberries into quarters.

Fresh strawberries have been cut into quarters on a cutting board.

Sprinkle the strawberries over the greens.

Add a sprinkle of feta crumbles and chopped nuts.

Use a fork to drain some of the pickled onions from the vinegar base and add them to the salad.

Make the Dressing

To make the salad dressing, measure out a bit of the vinegar from the jar of pickled onions and add it to a small bowl.

The jar of pickled red onions and olive oil are on the counter by the salad.

Then drizzle in the olive oil and use a fork to whisk them together.

Pour this simple vinaigrette over the prepared salad.

The dressing is ready to pour over the salad.

Make Ahead Tips

You can make an easy prep salad station in your fridge for making fresh strawberry salad all week long.

Simple prep and store each ingredient separately in the fridge.

You'll want to assemble the salad just before serving so the vegetables and fruit can retain their texture without going soggy.

Serving Suggestions

You could serve this fresh strawberry feta salad as a vegetarian-friendly entree or side dish.

I enjoyed it as a single serving lunch during the week.

If you want to turn it into a full blow dinner or just want to add more protein to it, you could considering adding air fried shrimp, broiled chicken tenders, or even sliced bits of pork tenderloin.

I would recommend seasoning the meats with my Caribbean jerk seasoning, homemade blackening seasoning, or using a simple Italian herb blend.
