Ingredients

  • One 16-ounce box strawberries, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch chives, thinly cut
  • 2 heads baby green lettuce
  • 6-8 whole basil leaves
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 Ounces Kerrygold Vintage or other sharp Cheddar, shaved into thin pieces with a mandoline

Directions

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. 

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
