Sweet strawberries pair wonderfully with the sharpness of the Cheddar and get a lovely kick from the chives to make a light and refreshing spring salad.
Combine the strawberries, chives, lettuce, and basil in a large serving bowl. Separately, juice the lemon into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the oil, whisking to combine. Season again as needed.
Pour the dressing over the greens and toss gently to combine. Add shavings of the cheese to the salad and serve.
