2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup fig balsamic vinegar
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the almonds, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the garlic, honey, Dijon mustard, and fig balsamic vinegar.
And now, in a large bowl, toss together the toasted almonds, romaine lettuce, strawberries, and feta cheese.
Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss!
