Strawberry and Romaine Salad


Strawberries are a delightful addition to spring and summer salads, contributing a delicious sweet-tart note and of course, beautiful color.

Here we've combined crunchy romaine and fresh basil, and then tossed the greens in a simple balsamic vinaigrette. Strawberries and balsamic are a match made in heaven, so don't be surprised if this delicious salad becomes a favorite!


1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette
2 teaspoons agave syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1 dash Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
8 cups Earthbound Farm Organic Romaine Hearts (about 3 hearts, torn into bite-size pieces)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (cut into thin ribbons or chiffonade)
2 large shallots (very thinly sliced)
2 cups Earthbound Farm Organic Strawberries (quartered)


Place the oil, vinegar, agave, salt and pepper in a large salad bowl and whisk to blend.

Just before serving, add the romaine and basil, and toss to coat the greens. Add the shallots and strawberries, then toss again. Divide the salad among serving plates or arrange on a large platter and serve immediately.
