Summer salad appears in many of the different books in the Redwall series. Pretty much whenever there’s a meal during summer, it includes summer salad. However, the specific ingredients of the salad are never mentioned, so I had to get a little creative with this one.
I started with lettuce, of course, then decided I wanted to include some fresh summer produce. Well, my very favorite fruit is strawberries, and I love strawberries on salad, so that was an easy choice. I knew this salad had to have some nuts and cheese on it, since Redwallers are all so fond of those two ingredients. Almonds are my favorite nut, and they taste great with strawberries. Finally, for the cheese, I went with crumbled bleu cheese to really give the salad a punch of flavor.
This salad is so easy to make, and you may just feel like a squirrel or a mouse while you eat it.
