Strawberry Salad

Woolies had a large (and I mean LARGE) punnet of strawberries for sale to day.  Of course I bought it.  But what to do with them?

I googled ‘strawberry salad’ cause I need to take a salad with to my mom in law for dinner tonight and I came across this simple fresh salad, I immediately pinned it and turned it into reality.



  • Lettuce (I used a bulk bag of crispy lettuce, ready washed etc from Woolies)
  • Red onion (I had bought a little bag of ready sliced red onion from Woolies. Gd bless you!!!)
  • Strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • Fresh mint, chopped (this I got from around the tap next to my back door, yum)
  • Pecan nuts (I left these out, cause well, I didnt have any…)


  • Quarter cup olive oil
  • Third of a cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Salt and crushed black pepper to taste


  • Toss lettuce, onion, strawberry and mint together in a salad bowl.
  • Blend together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.

I kept the dressing separate for each person to add for themselves but Im sure you could just toss the dressing over before serving.
