Units Scale

For Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about one lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey (adjust to taste)
  • Salt, 3/4 teaspoon or to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon or to taste

For salad:

  • 8 cups of torn or chopped Spring lettuce mix (I use equal parts spinach, arugula, and romain) – about 8 ounces
  • 2 cup sliced strawberries (about 230 grams)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots (about 40 grams)
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 1 avocado, skinned, and chopped
  • 1/3 cup pine nut
  • 1/2 cup crispy chickpeas (see notes and optional)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (100 grams)
  • Zest from one lemon


  1. Mix Dressing: Mix all vinaigrette dressing and mix until emulsified.
  2. Place aside while tossing salad
  3. Construct Salad: Mix remaining salad ingredients in large bowl (see notes)
  4. Mix Salad and Dressing: Add dressing and toss until well combine.
  5. Serve


  • To make the lettuce look pretty, only add half of the lettuce topping ingredients and toss. Add remaining ingredients to top once fully topped.
  • Dressing can be made beforehand, but make sure to mix before tossing
  • To make chickpeas, drain from can and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, and 1 tsp of salt. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until crispy and allow to cool.
