Green salad with sliced strawberries looks really fancy and gourmet. The best part is that it only takes a couple of minutes to make! This is a delightful sweet salad consisting of strawberries and lettuce, with maple adding to the sweetness. This is the perfect summer salad that tastes so fresh! The taste of strawberry slices really enhances the crispy greens, and together they make such a healthy delicious treat!

Strawberry lettuce salad is assembled and served on the individual plates (as opposed to one big salad bowl). This is because the strawberry slices are arranged on top of the lettuce, and this is best accomplished with the individual salad portions.

Ingredients:

10-12 strawberries
2-3 cups of lettuce
10-12 green olives
1 cup of green pepper
1/2 cup of red pepper
Tablespoon of maple syrup

Preparation:

1. Tear up the lettuce – into bite sized chunks.
2. Chop up the peppers into little squares, and the strawberries you can leave whole or slice in half, depending on the size.
3. Mix all the ingredients.
4. Pour the maple syrup on top right before you want to eat the salad or the lettuce will start to wilt away.
