If you haven’t tried roasting strawberries yet, you are missing out! We’ll guide you through it when you make Roasted Strawberry Basil Balsamic Salad. The crunch of radishes, almonds, and arugula pair well with the bold dressing flavored by roasted strawberries and balsamic vinegar. Thank you to Amy Blom from Fort Collins, Colorado, for this recipe that took home third prize in The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2019 Garden Guide Recipe Contest.
For dressing: Preheat oven to 400°F.
Lay strawberries on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Set sheet aside to cool somewhat.
In a blender or food processor, combine vinegar, oil, basil, tahini, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon zest, and, finally, strawberries. Process until smooth.
For salad: In a large mixing bowl, combine arugula, cucumbers, radishes, and onions.
Before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss to combine. Sprinkle chopped almonds and feta over salad.
