The best Summer Salad with strawberries, avocado, feta, and honey salted crunchy walnuts!



For the walnuts:

  • 1 cup raw walnut pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Flakey sea salt

For the honey balsamic vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp dijon
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt + pepper, to taste

For the salad:

  • 5 cups mixed greens
  • 2 baby cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 + 1/2 cups ripe strawberries, sliced
  • 1 avocado, ripe but still firm, diced
  • 1/3 of a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 34 oz feta, crumbled


  1. First, make the walnuts. In a small pot or pan, mix walnuts with butter and honey over low heat. Allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Spread walnuts out on a parchment-lined pan and sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make your honey balsamic vinaigrette. In a jar or bowl, mix all ingredients together. Set aside.
  3. Next, prep your salad ingredients. I recommend not tossing salad until ready to serve, and reserving some of each ingredient to sprinkle on top of tossed salad.
  4. Toss everything together when ready to serve. Serve immediately and enjoy!
