Ingredients

For the Salad

  • 1 cup almonds, slivered
  • 12 oz mixed spring greens
  • 16 oz strawberries, washed, hulled, & sliced
  • 4 oz goat cheese, crumbled

For the Lemon Honey Vinaigrette

  • 1⁄2 cup sunflower oil, safflower, OR extra-virgin olive oil (neutral-flavored)
  • 5 tbsp lemon juice, freshly-squeezed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1⁄4 tsp sea salt, plus additional to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds, optional

Instructions

  1. Adjust the rack to the center position and preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. Spread the slivered almonds on a sheet pan and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until fragrant and light brown, watching carefully to prevent burning. Set aside and allow to cool.

  3. To prepare the vinaigrette, measure all of the ingredients into a Mason jar. Tightly screw on the lid and shake vigorously until everything is thoroughly combined.

  4. Alternatively, you may whisk the ingredients together in a medium bowl or blend them in a mini food processor or blender.

  5. To assemble the salad, layer the mixed greens, sliced strawberries, toasted slivered almonds, and crumbled goat cheese in a large bowl.

  6. Before serving, dress with your desired amount of lemon honey vinaigrette and toss until the salad ingredients are evenly coated.
