Pea and Strawberry Salad Recipe

0 from 0 votes

Fruit and flowers put a unique twist on summer salad.

With so many salad ideas to choose from, let us recommend this fruity blend that is perfect for the warmer months. Wild strawberries and elderberries are combined in a mouth-watering combination and lend a delicate flavor to this summer salad favorite.

For a more intense flavor experience, try opting for wild strawberries, which are smaller than traditional varieties, but big on taste. If wild strawberries aren’t an option, neither the delicate flavor, nor the nutritional value, will change by selecting a traditional strawberry. Enjoy!
