If you are looking for a nearby family getaway for Father’s day, don’t miss the Strawberry Festival in Mattituck on the North Fork. Sample a variety of treats made with local strawberries and maybe catch a glimpse of the Strawberry queen!
I love the flavors of fresh berries with a tangy cheese and some balsamic reduction on local meslun greens or arugula. Try this summery salad in honor of the North Fork’s Strawberry Festival and celebrate the season and Happy Father’s Day!
Tangy Strawberry Feta Salad on mixed greens
1 pint Strawberries, sliced
1 cup Crumbled Feta cheese from Catapano Dairy Farm
Mesclun Mix from Sang Lee Farms
1/4 cup of Canola Oil
1/8 cup of raspberry vinager
1/2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
Salt to taste
Balsamic Reduction for garnish
In a small bowl add vinager, mustard and drizzle in the oil while whisking. Once emulsified, add salt to taste and set aside.
In large bowl toss greens with dressing and place on a platter. Add strawberries and crumbled cheese on top and drizzle with balsamic reduction or pomegranate syrup and serve immediately. Could be a great accompaniment to pork tenderloin and a bottle of chilled Sparkling Rose by Bedell Cellars. Pick up a bottle!Share on Facebook
