Fresh local strawberries started showing up at the farmers market recently and on the weekend I picked up a bunch of them. I was wondering what to do with them when I came across this recipe for a strawberry and feta salad that sounded nice and simple and good. What better way to start off enjoying the strawberries than a fresh strawberry salad? One of the reasons that I liked this salad was its use of the raspberry vinegar. I had never bought a flavoured vinegar before and I had been wanting to try one. This salad was the perfect excuse to pick some up. I really enjoyed the strawberry and feta salad and it was super quick and easy to throw together. The salty feta went really well with the sweet and juicy strawberries and the almonds added a nice crunchy texture. I liked the way the raspberry vinegar went in the salad and of course the balsamic vinegar is a classic companion to strawberries. I am looking forward to more strawberries and using the raspberry vinegar again.
