Recipe: Strawberry, feta and rocket salad

Our kids love going strawberry picking, so last week when the sun was shining, we took them to Easter Anguston. The place has gotten a slight upgrade since our visit last year - you now pay £5 for an empty punnet and you may fill it with as many strawberries as you like. There is also an additional play area next to the animal enclosures, with diggers and sandpits as well as mini tractors for the kids to drive around. You can read more about Easter Anguston Farm here.

Since we plucked lots of strawberries, I made a nice summer's salad for lunch - strawberry, feta and rocket salad. Juicy strawberries with a tangy dressing and creamy cheese - absolutely lovely! Try this the next time you get your hands on some strawberries.
