About the Recipe

This salad features strawberry on every level— even blended it into the dressing, ensuring that the flavor really shines through. The crunchy bacon pairs beautifully with the sweet strawberry vinaigrette and thinly sliced shallot.


  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot (from 1 shallot)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons honey

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 3 cups sliced strawberries (from 1 lb. fresh strawberries), divided

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 5 cups baby spring mix (from 2 [5-oz.] pkg.)

  • 1 (4-oz.) feta cheese block, crumbled

  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, halved 

  • 8 bacon slices, cooked and coarsely chopped


  1. Place red wine vinegar, finely chopped shallot, honey, Dijon mustard, 1 cup of the strawberries, and ¼ teaspoon of the kosher salt in a blender. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds. With blender running, gradually drizzle in oil, processing until mixture is smooth and combined, about 30 seconds.

  2. Arrange spring mix on a large platter. Top with feta, sliced shallot, tomatoes, bacon, and remaining 2 cups strawberries and ½ teaspoon salt. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad, and serve immediately.
