Strawberry Salad - Salty Recipes

In contrast to the strawberry salads with fruits, which are primarily used as dessert, these recipes can be given as a side dish for lunch or dinner.

They go well with almost any meal and give an exotic touch to it. Furthermore, the salty strawberry salads are great "stand-alone" meals. They are perfect for buffet or garden parties and they are not much work.

I love that recipe and it has become an almost daily lunch for me.

The main advantage is it has only three ingredients, takes less than five minutes to prepare and has the perfect mixture of sweet and hearty.
