Blue cheese avocado strawberry salad

Salads are a go-to side dish but sometimes I crave something a little different. This delicious salad with creamy avocado and blue cheese and juicy strawberries is the perfect side dish to grilled chicken, fish or pork and takes only minutes to make.

How to make avocado strawberry salad

Simply slice or cube ripe avocado and place on a bed of baby lettuce (baby spinach works just as well). I used a mixture of baby rocket/arugula and butter lettuce. Add halved strawberries and chunks of blue cheese. A slightly firmer blue cheese works better in this salad. If the cheese is too creamy, it won’t toss as well. The salad can be kept covered, like this, for up to an hour in the fridge. Dress the salad right before serving.

Strawberries

What dressing to use for strawberry salad

Because the flavors in this salad aren’t too delicate, the dressing can be punchy. Balsamic vinegar, olive oil and orange juice combined make a delicious dressing for this simple salad.
