Mesclun Strawberry Salad

This afternoon, I stopped in my all time favorite salad place, sweetgreen.  If you are lucky enough to live near one of their locations, and you've never been, you're missing out.  I love this place for lots of reasons, some being their social and environmental consciousness, the seasonal, locally bought ingredients, their blog with wicked tasty recipes, and primarily their innovation in general.  If you don't live near by, here's a salad I had today, adapted slightly.

Ingredients: (serves 1)
2 cups mesclun salad
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1/3 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped asparagus (you can use raw, marinated, cooked - I used raw)
1 tbs walnuts (or toasted almonds)
couple slices red onion (optional)
balsamic vinaigrette

  1. This looks GREAT! So summery and fresh. I'll have to try it out. Lately I've been making a super-easy salad that's a big hit at dinner parties, etc.: any kind of greens you want (I've used romaine or spinach), topped with beets (cooked and cubed) and goat cheese, and a vinaigrette. Here's to great summer salads!
