This salad is light, juicy, colorful, and totally delicious! The colder the salad is, the better it tastes, especially during really hot days! So refreshing!

If you want to make this salad ahead of time, keep the dressing separately. If you mix everything together and keep for hours in the fridge, it will get soggy. Don’t do that!!

What goes into this Strawberries, Pomegranate, Queso Blanco, And Basil Salad:

  1. Strawberries – ripe, sweet strawberries will be the best!
  2. Pomegranate – crunchy and refreshing.
  3. Fresh basil and baby spinach – delicious! If you want to, you can change it for some ready-to-use mix of greens.
  4. Queso blanco or queso fresco – “white cheese”, popular in Latin America, although it’s different in each country. If you cannot find it, you can use instead tvorog/quark, ricotta, or cottage cheese.
  5. Honey-lime dressing – delicious, simply dressing made with honey, lime juice, and olive oil.
  6. Pinch of freshly ground black pepper – for the extra flavor punch!
  7. Salted, toasted, chopped nuts – just a little bit on top, totally optional, but why not?!
