Strawberries in a salad? Don’t question it — you definitely won’t after you take a bite of this stunning salad featuring the best of summer produce: ripe strawberries, crunchy cucumbers, fresh mint, red onion, and a zesty homemade honey lemon salad dressing.

When strawberry season hits, all we want to eat is strawberries. We’ll put them in anything: brownies, cinnamon rolls, and of course, fruit salad. But when we want something a little less sweet, we make this show-stopping salad. Cucumber, tomato, and feta are a classic Mediterranean salad combo — and since tomato is technically a fruit, we thought, why couldn’t we use fresh, ripe strawberries instead?
