It’s that time of year for another seasonal collaboration! This season, I’ve teamed up with over 100 other content creators to highlight strawberries. And let me tell you, there are some GOOD ones out there today! Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see what everyone is cooking (and baking).
Over the past year, this group of bloggers has highlighted a different seasonal vegetable every quarter. First, we did spring peas, then peaches, and finally apples! I only posted the first two recipes on Instagram, so my Individual Microwave Apple Crisp was the first one from this collaboration to hit the blog.
To stick with my blog’s theme of easy vegetable recipes, I set out to make this season’s recipe a bit more focused on veggies! But of course I still wanted to let strawberries shine for the little balls of deliciousness they are. Enter: today’s Butter Lettuce Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing.
Growing up, I remember eating the MOST delicious strawberry and spinach salad with homemade poppy seed dressing that my mom made in the summertime. I’ve loved the combo of strawberries and poppy seeds ever since! Something about the two together just screams warm weather, family dinners, and sunshine.
So when I found out this season’s highlighted ingredient was strawberries, I had my mind made up. Plus, I’ve been in a butter lettuce phase ever since I made a yummy salad with it for Easter this year. I added some onions and goat cheese (because, duh), and this delicious Butter Lettuce Strawberry Salad was born.
This salad is perfect for lunch! Top it with a piece of grilled salmon or chicken to round out the meal.
Butter Lettuce Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
This refreshing salad is perfect for warm spring and summer days. Sweet strawberries pair well with fresh butter lettuce, goat cheese, and homemade poppy seed dressing.
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 1 pound strawberries sliced
- 1/2 cup onion sliced
- 1/2 cup goat cheese crumbled, plus more to taste
For the dressing:
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds more to taste
- 1 tsp dried mustard
- 2 heaping tbsp onion diced
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Wash and dry the butter lettuce. Use your hands to rip leaves into pieces of desired size. Add lettuce pieces to a large bowl and add the sliced strawberries and onions. Top with goat cheese crumbles.
To prepare the dressing, combine ingredients in a small bowl and whisk vigorously until well combined. Pour over salad to taste, and toss well. Transfer to plates and enjoy!
To make this more of a meal, consider adding a piece of grilled salmon or chicken!
