- Wash and dry the greens.
- Wash, stem and dice the strawberries, reseving a few whole berries for garnish.
- Make a vinagrette: mix together 1/3rd cup of canola or other mild-flavored vegetable oil, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp water, 1 pressed or mashed garlic clove (optional) and salt and pepper to taste.
- With a fork, mash half the diced berries and add to the vinagrette. Stir or shake well.
- In a large salad bowl, toss the greens with the dressing, the remaining diced berries, the crumbled feta cheese (if using) and garnish with the whole berries. Serve immediately.
