Feta Strawberry Salad with Rosemary

This salad recipe might intrigue you because rosemary is not often seen in such recipes, but if you have never tried rosemary and strawberries before, you are in for a treat. The salad itself is quite simple, and for that you will need strawberries, iceberg lettuce and feta cheese.

The dressing really brings out the flavor, and that is made with honey and balsamic vinegar for sweetness, lemon juice and mustard for piquancy, and garlic and oil to tie the flavors together. Some rosemary leaves are also pureed into the dressing, to add an aromatic, herbal touch. You can garnish the salad with some rosemary sprigs to continue the theme and to add visual interest.

Rosemary is actually a member of the mint family, although those two flavors are not similar. It is a decorate plant in the garden and also has a variety of culinary and medical uses. Rosemary is often added to roast meats and used to make stuffing. If you grow your own rosemary and strawberries, you can make this delicious garden salad with the produce of your own garden. Rosemary is ornamental because it has pretty purple flowers on it, as well as the delicious and fragrant leaves.

Photo Description:

Sometimes it is nice to make classic salad recipes such as Caesar salad or Salad Niçoise, but other times you might wish to try something a little different. Fresh herbs are always beautiful with salads, so why not swap your usual basil, parsley or cilantro for rosemary, and try something deliciously unique? As you can see in the photo, the rosemary adds a fresh and appealing presentation to the dish, and the bright red strawberries also look great. The honey mustard dressing pictured is optional but you can use that instead of our rosemary dressing, or serve it as an optional extra.
