Delicious ripe strawberries come together with creamy avocados, basil, and feta cheese making one unforgettable salad! The pasta adds a new and delicious texture and makes this salad perfect and unique!
You guys. Strawberries are looking pretty amazing right now! I have been stocking up from Costco because I love them so much. I even got some from my local grocery store last week and they were perfectly sweet and plump. I love making recipes that include strawberries. They are my favorite.
As a food blogger your life revolves around food. Which isn’t always a bad thing right? 😉 Well when I was thinking of a recipe to make, I decided to combine some of my favorites.
I LOVE the combination of strawberries and avocados. Avocados are so versatile and can be partnered up with quite a few things. But I especially love it with strawberries. One of my favorite salads actually is this Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad. So I paired up the two again and added it with my other favorites. Basil, feta cheese and pasta. The pasta added such a delicious texture to this salad.
The result was absolutely fantastic. You guys are going to love this salad. Wherever you take this it will be a hit! So many delicious flavors and textures in this salad and it is tossed in a light lemon olive oil glaze. Super simple but it adds a light flavor to this already delicious salad. This salad is perfect for the warmer weather ahead and I know you will love it as much as we did!

I made it for our pot luck at church and it was beautiful. Sadly, it had no flavor:(. What did I do wrong?????
Oh no! I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out. Was your basil fresh? Between that and the lemon, there should definitely have been a lot of flavor!
I’m impressed! I, too, love Cooling, Recipes, Experimenting with Recipes, & pleasing the pallets of my family & friends.
My family love salads and I definitely will be trying your delicious recipes. Thank you for sharing.
this recipe is delicious, thanks for sharing. I’m always looking for new recipes to try 🙂
This sounds delicious, but I’m curious what the fridge shelf life is? My concern is that it’s too much for my family of three and I wonder about the avocados turning brown…or does the lemon juice solve this potential problem?? Thanks!
