Salad Days – Green Salad With Roasted Strawberries

Today we have yet another recipe for a delicious salad with strawberries used in a more unusual way….roasted.  This is simple and if you add chicken can be a main course salad but it is also perfect as is served as a side salad.  The strawberries add brightness both in taste and in color.  This one is a crowd pleaser.  Try it this weekend, we think you’ll agree 🙂

 

 

 

Green Salad With Roasted Strawberries

1 head romaine lettuce, trimmed and chopped (or use baby spinach)
1 lb. of strawberries, about 2 cups, sliced
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 oz. goat cheese
1 cup pecans or almonds
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Slice strawberries and sprinkle with brown sugar, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.  Stir lightly just to coat the sliced berries.  Turn out onto a parchment paper, or silpat lined, baking sheet.  Roast in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.  Cool completely.  Add strawberries and juice to lettuce.  Also add goat cheese slightly crumbled, pecans, and cranberries.  Toss with vinaigrette and ENJOY!!!
