Mixed Greens with Strawberries, Extra Sharp White Cheddar, and Candied Pecans with a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Mixed Greens with Strawberries, Extra Sharp White Cheddar, and Candied Pecans with a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

While eating lunch this past weekend, my husband discovered that fresh strawberries and with extra sharp white cheddar tasted really great together. We were heading to a friend’s house for dinner and I was in charge of bringing a salad. I decided to make a summery salad using strawberries and the extra sharp cheddar along with mixed greens, romaine lettuce, cucumber, and candied pecans. I served the salad with a homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette. This salad was a huge hit and even our friend’s kids who don’t like salads ate theirs. I love that!
