This is such an amazing salad to get your week off to a great start!   On The Lighter Side this week we have a Strawberry Mozzarella Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette. 

The textures and flavors in this salad are surprising.  The soft creaminess of the mozzarella, the crunchy nutty flavor of the roasted almonds and the sweet flavor of the fresh strawberries all come together to make an incredible treat for your senses.

Served on a bed of mixed lettuce this is an satisfying light dish.    I love this salad.  I have that bottle of salad dressing in my fridge to use for more salads! Like pecans in your salad? Try my apple pecan salad, you will love it!

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. Love this dressing. The berry with the cheese sound fantastic together. I usually do blue cheese with my strawberries but I will definitely be trying mozzarella next time. Who can resist mozzarella?

  2. I'm having company for dinner this weekend and that may just be what I need to go with steaks. Your photo looks like it came out of a magazine! Great post. Thanks!

  3. I like that you used fresh mozarella in this salad – that vinaigrette sounds great with the strawberries pureed..yum!

  4. 5 stars
    The fresh mozzarella is a perfect addition in this salad. Your salad recipes are always unique and taste amazing.
