Recipe of the Day: Greens with Feta, Strawberries & Almonds

A lovely light salad using farm fresh greens and berries. This looks gorgeous and tastes divine. If you are not a fan of feta, you could definitely sub in another salty strong cheese, maybe blue or gorgonzola. If you prefer unsmoked almonds, I would use roasted almonds, so yummy.

Here is a variation using goat cheese & slivered toasted almonds.
