Crunchy Strawberry Salad

Crunchy Strawberry SaladNote: This recipe is part of a sponsored series created for Fiber One.

With strawberry season arriving in the northeast, I am thinking of all the ways I will use strawberries this season. Typically, I make jam, freeze some, make lemonade, eat a lot and slice some into salads. Strawberries have always been my favorite fruit, so I eat as many as I can when they are in season (and sometimes when they aren’t too).

In salads, strawberries pair wonderfully with smooth greens like baby spinach or Boston bibb lettuce — though sometimes it’s nice with romaine lettuce as well. But a salad is more than lettuce and berries … it needs more flavors and more textures to be something truly craveworthy.

This Crunchy Strawberry Salad totally is.

It has it all — sweet strawberries, vibrant greens, sharp blue cheese, crisp sugar snap peas and lightly sweet cereal. I love the way the bite of the cheese mingles with the sweetness of the berries. And also the way the crisp sugar snap peas contrast with the crunchy cereal. It’s a symphony of flavors and textures. And it’s so fast to make — so it’s perfect for any day’s lunch.

When Fiber One approached me about creating some mix-in recipes with their cereals, I was psyched. I love adding crunch to recipes and immediately started dreaming up ways to do that — including a recipe that’s a little more savory because I really love contrasting flavors and textures. Don’t you?
