This Rocket Strawberry and Feta Salad is lovely and refreshing with some strong flavours that work so well together.

Fruit in salads is a little controversial, some do not like the sweet with the savoury, but you have to trust me that almost always it is absolutely delicious! This is a popular combination enjoyed around the world.
With strawberries back for summer and finally affordable I wanted to share this recipe with you. It looks absolutely stunning on the table and is so quick and easy to make.
Rocket, or arugula as it is called in some countries, is a delicious peppery salad green. I am a huge fan and love using it in summer sandwiches and my salads. The peppery tastes works so well with the sweetness of the strawberries.
I have used a store bought Italian balsamic dressing here as I have it on hand and like to use it in many of my salads. But I have also given instructions for how to make your own from scratch.
I have topped it with some feta for a creamy tangy contrast and some sunflower seeds for some added crunch, so all your bases are covered!
All you will need is
Balsamic Dressing (or see below for homemade version)
Then you just need to prepare it in your favourite salad bowl. Visually you will want to layer it rather than have all the ingredients mixed in however I have a few tips to maximise flavour.
There is nothing worse than salad leaves that have not been dressed properly, so rather than drizzling the dressing over at the end I like to toss the leaves and half the sunflower seeds in the dressing first.
Then I layer on the strawberries, the feta and the remaining sunflower seeds. It is that easy! This will be perfect for summer BBQ’s or the Christmas table with the green and red hues. You can have a little more of the dressing on the side when you serve.
