Strawberry Salad with Feta, Avocado and Toasted AlmondsIt’s strawberry season here in New England, which means a full-on strawberry frenzy in the kitchen for us here at CTbites. Watson’s Catering and Events has created this easy and delicious summer salad. If you still have a quart of strawberries leftover from your strawberry-picking adventures, this is where you’ll want to put them to work.
