On a short trip away, we were lucky enough to stay the night with some good old friends. Mere is a wonderful cook and baker and has some great salad specialties among her bag of kitchen tricks. Here is one she whipped up for us to accompany a tasty pizza.

Serves 4

  • Dressing
  • 4 tbsp white sugar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Salad
  • 4-6 cups salad greens
  • 2 spring onions chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados pitted and sliced
  • handful fresh peas
  • 300 g (1 pint) strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 c pecans (toasted in the oven for about 10 min is also good)

In a small bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients. Marinate the strawberries in this for about an hour.

Toss all the salad ingredients together and then add strawberries and as much dressing as you prefer, then sprinkle the pecans over and serve.

Thanks Mere!
