Strawberry Avocado Salad

By Chef John Ash

Sweet strawberries and salty cheese have a wonderful affinity for each other. This simple salad is delicious with the Russian River Ranches Chardonnay, which has rich, ripe fruit flavor.

    Serves 4

    Total Time 20 minutes

    Prep Time 20 minutes

    Difficulty Level Beginner


    2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar

    1-1/2 tsp honey

    1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

    1/4 tsp salt

    freshly ground black pepper

    1-1/2 c strawberries, hulled and halved

    1/3 c sliced red onion

    4 thin slices prosciutto (about 2 oz)

    2 oz goat cheese or feta, sliced or crumbled

    1 small firm-ripe avocado, peeled and cut into large dice

    1 small Belgian endive separated into leaves


    1. In a large serving bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, olive oil salt and pepper and adjust seasoning to your taste. Add berries and red onion, toss gently and set aside for a few minutes.

    2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place prosciutto on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer. Cook until prosciutto becomes crisp about 7 minutes. Alternately you can use a large sauté pan with a little olive oil spray. Transfer to a plate to cool.

    3. Add the baby arugula to the serving bowl with the cheese, strawberry mixture, avocado and toss gently until just coated. Divide the salad among 4 serving plates, and top evenly with chards of the crisp prosciutto.
