Strawberry Salad

Strawberry Salad

Yesterday, I went to the Sheridan’s Irish Food Festival in Co. Cavan. The weather was glorious, there were over 100 Irish producers and people flocked in their thousands. I brought home all sorts of wonderful goodies but I think none marked me more than the strawberry punnet I bought from Clarke’s Fresh Fruit stall. Their strawberries are firm but juicy, sweet but tangy. They are in fact the nicest strawberries I’ve had in many years. I couldn’t wait to get home to tuck into them and I ate about half of the punnet standing beside my sink. With the other half I made the following strawberry salad.


  • 2 large handfuls of mixed salad leaves. You will want aromatics in this strawberry salad. The bolder the taste, the better. Think rocket, endive, mint, spinach, beetroot, celery leaves. 
  • Half a punnet of strawberries
  • 1 bunch of scallions
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed black pepper
  • 1 table spoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil



  • Wash and drain your salad leaves
  • Slice your strawberries
  • Cut your scallions in small pieces
  • Mix the leaves, strawberries and scallions. 
  • Sprinkle with the pepper and drizzle with the vinegar and oil.
  • Mix well

    Beautiful salad Katia. I have only recently started using strawberries in savoury foods and I love it.

      I’m normally a mango person for my salads but I’m converting to berries slowly but surely.
