Paleo Strawberry/Almond/Pea Salad for Everyone

I promise that you are going to want to hunt me down and give me a big, fat kiss after you eat this salad.  And the best thing is, it’s for everyone – even vegans.  You could put a spin on it like adding feta and shrimp, chicken, or salmon if you want it to be a main course that will serve all.  (Paleos will skip the feta).

Paleo Salad 2

The original recipe was in Bon Appetit magazine, but I switched it up so much that it became mine.




2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced

1 cup almonds (I used salted and roasted, but use the kind you like)

1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thalled

1 package arugula

Your favorite balsamic dressing (I used the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe, below)

Place the first four ingredients in a large salad bowl.  Drizzle with dressing (not too much.)  Toss

To make this a main course, add shrimp, baked chicken breast, or salmon.  To make it non-paleo, add shaved Parmesan cheese or crumbled feta.




1/4 cup olive oil (I use less)

1 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon honey (I add this to cut the tartness)

Whisk in a bowl.
