Oh, yum!! I took this to a work potluck & everyone really liked it. I didn't have the full amount of honey or the shallot, but the dressing was still wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe! I didn't have any shallots, but this dressing is incredible! I was lazy and just put all the ingredients for the dressing in a Tupperware container and shook it up really good and it emulsified pretty good. Some leftover chicken would be great on top of this too! Thank you for a great recipe, Emily!

Delicious! I used crumbled gorgonzola instead of feta.

DELISH!!!!! I made no changes at all. The dressing is excellent by itself on lettuce etc as well. Thanks!

This is a fantastic, easy recipe! I used pistachios instead of almonds, and goat cheese in place of the feta. Amazing!

this is quick and easy and a great, fresh salad. Definitely serve the dressing on the side as the lettuce will wilt quickly.

I just made this salad for my Bunco group and it had rave reviews! I had made the dressing in advance and was easy to throw together. Very flavorful and delicious!

Great recipe! I did substitute dried cranberries for the strawberries and it came out great!
