Children and adults alike love this salad.  It’s easy as!

Preparation

Preheat the oven at 160ºC (fan-forced).  On a baking tray lined with baking paper, scatter the almonds.  Roast for 10 minutes.  Set aside and allow to cool.

To make the dressing, combine all ingredients in a jar.  Screw on lid securely and shake vigorously.  Set aside.

For the salad, arrange the lettuce leaves on a large serving platter.  Arrange the strawberries on top of the lettuce.  Crumble the cheese over strawberries and lettuce.  Sprinkle over the micro herbs and almonds.

Shake the dressing jar again and drizzle over salad.  Serve and enjoy.

Tips from the author

Any nuts can be used in this recipe such as walnuts, pine nuts or pecans. Seeds and nut mixtures work well with this recipe too. This salad tastes good without any nuts too.

Special thanks to Jeffrey & Germain Borg of Choice Seedlings and the Year 5 & 6 children from St Paul's School, Camden, for welcoming Love my Salad onto the farm and enjoying this salad without the nuts.
