20 min

This Strawberry Butter Lettuce Salad has fresh strawberries, crunchy candied almonds, and tangy goat cheese for the perfect combination of flavors. Top with a strawberry or regular vinaigrette and you will have your go-to summer salad!


This salad has the perfect combination of sweet, salty, tangy, and crunchy to satisfy anyone. You could serve this as a light meal or increase the portions for the perfect summer salad for a BBQ, picnic, or get-together!


If you are making for a crowd, I would recommend serving without the dressing. This way you can store the leftovers covered in the fridge. If the salad had dressing on it, it will get soggy.


Substitutions include spinach or mixed greens, walnuts or pecans, and feta or blue cheese.

Instructions


Rinse, dry, and hull the strawberries. Cut each one into thin slices and set aside.
Rinse and dry the butter lettuce and cut off the core at the bottom to create separate leaves. Arrange the leave around the bottom of the bowl in 3-4 layers starting largest to smallest. Place the strawberries on top of the lettuce.
