Strawberry Fields Forever: A Simple Summer Salad with Strawberries, Pecan, and Feta

Strawberry Fields Forever: A Simple Summer Salad Recipe

There’s this little restaurant in Atlanta (Folk Art) that has a really good strawberry salad that I always order. Especially during the summer months because it’s light but filling. I’m kind of picky about salads…unless they involve fried chicken. Then, I’m all in.

ANYWAY, when I was putting together meal ideas for a dinner party shoot (which I’ll be sharing next week), I realized that salad I always order would be super easy to recreate at home. I swapped out a few ingredients from the original, which typically has bacon, tomatoes, etc (I nixed all of those) and added in a few more of my faves (feta and candied pecans) and now I have a go-to summer salad that is beyond easy to make and is really, really delicious. Click through for the recipe.

Strawberry Fields Forever: A Summertime Salad Recipe


  • 3-4 cups of whole strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of candied pecans
  • 1 cup of crumbled feta
  • 8-10 cups spring mix greens or baby spinach
  • balsamic vinaigrette


Wash and slice strawberries thin(ish) and chop pecan if desired (I left mine whole for more crunch). Then combine strawberries, greens, feta, and pecans. Add dressing to taste.

I am currently obsessed with Nordstrom Bistro’s Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad and plan to recreate it at home. It is SO good.


Oh wow. I haven’t had it, but that sounds good Kimberly.
