Honey Roasted Strawberry Feta Salad

This honey roasted strawberry feta salad balances the intense sweetness from the roasted strawberries with the fresh, peppery watercress and asparagus greens and the salty feta.

I know this makes me weird but one thing I always feel is missing from party spreads is a nice big salad.

There’s always plenty of chips, dips, finger foods, cheese and fruit platters, but hardly ever anything green!

It kinda drives me nuts because if there’s a nice big pile of green next to the chips, cheese and whatever other carb fest foods are at my disposal, it obviously completely negates those things (and means I can try one of every dessert).

And then of course when there is, it’s some mixed iceberg salad with your typical cherry tomatoes, carrots and bottled dressing options.

Roasted strawberry salad with feta, watercress and asparagus

So when Président® asked me to share one of their recipes that would be perfect for parties, I picked a salad that would garner a bit more excitement.

This roasted strawberry feta salad is definitely party worthy.

Roasted strawberry and feta salad with asparagus and watercress greens

Strawberries and feta are a classic combination. The sweet and salty thing just works.

To make things even sweeter and deepen the flavor a bit, these strawberries took a little bath with some honey and then got all hot and bothered in the oven for about 30 minutes.

The result is a deliciously sweet, roasted soft berry whose juice is drizzled on top as the dressing.

No oil or vinegar even needed.

Strawberry and feta salad with watercress and shaved asparagus

Combined with the salty feta crumbles, peppery watercress, fresh shaved asparagus and toasted walnuts, I’m betting no one is going to miss the iceberg.

If you want to use another green besides watercress (which I personally love but I get that some think it’s too peppery), baby spinach would be great. Although predictable because isn’t spinach always used with strawberries?

Another option would be the Asian version of spinach: tatsoi. Tatsoi makes a great salad green and is a bit more exciting than traditional spinach.

Baby chard or baby kale would also work well. Up to you, those honey roasted strawberries are really the star of the salad show anyway!
