Strawberry and Feta Salad

Let's say that, hypothetically, you bought a giant block of your husband's second-least-favorite cheese of all time (That would be feta. Blue cheese is his very least favorite, of course.) in order to make Greek Quinoa Salad. Since you only used half the giant block of feta for the salad, you still have the rest of it lurking in your cheese drawer. Well, you'd best use that feta up stat before your husband sniffs it out in the cheese drawer and insists that it's contaminating his cheddar. Hypothetically, of course.

Why don't you make yourself this delightful Strawberry and Feta Salad for lunch? Use up a chunk of that feta before your husband finds it. And you deserve something delicious and beautiful in your lunch box. It'll make your day that much better. Trust me.

Strawberry and Feta Salad
Makes 1 giant salad

2 cups chopped Romaine (or your favorite lettuce)
3-4 strawberries, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
1 ounce crumbled feta cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper

Place a big mound of Romaine on your plate. Top with basil, mint, pecans, and feta. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
