Some of the best salads are born when I rummage through the fridge and toss a few odds and ends into a bowl of greens.  That’s how this Strawberry Salad came to be.

I had a few strawberries, a few grapes, the last of a package of feta cheese that needed to be used up, and some leftover toasted walnuts.  I tossed it with the balsamic vinaigrette dressing that I’d made a few days earlier and bam!  

It was a salad sensation.
