Pistachio Strawberry Salad

Although a strawberry salad has some fundamental components, virtually anything can be added. Here is a list of the fundamentals and some advice for making your pistachio salad the finest on the menu!

  • Use lettuce, either green or red leaf varieties. Change the leaf lettuce in a salad called Spinach Strawberry Pecan Salad for spinach (and add pecans instead of pistachios).
  • Berries: Any berry can be substituted for strawberries.
  • Almonds, walnuts, or pecans can be substituted for pistachios.

Keep the lettuce uniformly chopped or torn, slice the strawberries, and add green onions for a stunning strawberry salad.

Pistachios (and all other nuts) should be roasted in a small skillet to bring out their natural taste. Before adding them to the salad, let them cool to room temperature. Nuts taste much better and get crunchier when cooked.

Pistachio Strawberry Salad preparation:

  1. Quinoa should be cooked, then set aside to cool completely before being added to the salad.
  2. Refrigerate after combining the dressing’s components.
  3. Add chilled quinoa, chopped, roasted pistachios, crumbled feta cheese, sliced strawberries, cranberries, and green onions.
  4. Over the salad, drizzle the dressing, gently toss, and serve right away.

What goes best with this salad?

This salad tastes wonderful with croutons on top for some added crunch. However, crackers or bread with thinly sliced garlic also tastes great!

This salad is clearly an entrée that can stand alone, but if it’s served as a side dish, it pairs wonderfully with pork chops or just-grilled chicken breasts!
