Strawberry and caramalised peanut salad

strawberry-and-caramalised-peanut-salad-1

Winter is creeping up on us, so I wanted to make a nice summery salad for old times’ sake.  When searching the isles of our local green grocer for pops of colour I can use in the salad, I came across pretty red strawberries that would complement the different shades of green I planned to use. Although colour is very important when creating a salad, texture is another vital component . I originally wanted to use peanut brittle, but when I stumbled upon the caramalised peanuts I realised that they are the perfect size for the job.

The tasty combination of this salad is one that could without a doubt carry me through winter. So, bon voyage my friend Fresh Cold Salad – until we meet again in spring.
