No need to mince the garlic and shallot. Simply peel and add to your high-speed blender. This will work even if your blender is not high speed. Just cut the shallot in quarters or smaller, and add to a blender along with the vinegar, olive oil, agave, salt, and pepper.
Blend for 30-45 seconds until mixed and creamy.
Chop the walnuts, slice the strawberries, slice the sage and mint leaves, and thinly slice the onion.
Add the five ounce container of "spring mix" salad to a large bowl. Add the walnuts, strawberries, sage, mint, and onion. Add the vegan feta cheese. If you did not purchase the feta cheese you will need to make it ahead of time. See the blog post for recipe suggestions. If you are using dairy feta cheese then just add it.
Toss together and drizzle the white balsamic on top. Serve
You can sub pecans or almonds for the walnuts.If you are not vegan then use whichever feta cheese you wish. If you are vegan, I enjoy Follow Your Heart Brand. You can also make one of the following recipes. Plan to make it ahead of time:
