Strawberry Salad With Citrus Dressing

Strawberry salad with citrus dressing is hands down our favorite salad and dressing. It is seriously so delicious and light. This time we used Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, but we prefer Myzithera or Feta.
I didn’t take a picture of the dressing because the glass wasn’t allowing me to get a good picture. But this is one of my favorite salads as of late. It’s light and refreshing and perfect for when guests come to dinner. I feel like a plain salad with ranch, while totally delicious, just doesn’t have the wow factor that other salads with berries and homemade dressing have. This recipe is one that I actually learned years ago in college, and we still make it even to this day.
And that’s saying a lot because many college recipes aren’t really all that great. In fact, many were just basics as I was trying to save money and time. Hello plain spaghetti noodles and butter with a side of salad. Simple, easy and more importantly, cheap. Ahhhh the good ol’ days.
I can’t believe just how little I knew about cooking back then. I remember at one point having to ask if a clove of garlic was the entire bulb or just the small piece. Now, I did think it was just the small piece, but still, I totally had to double check. And if chicken wasn’t cooked through I’d just hurry and cut it up, throw it in a skillet and cook the heck out of it. Ohhhhh, that was so not good!

How Long Will Fresh Strawberries Keep?
