Phil Vickery serves up the perfect recipe to start off a three course meal with a spinach, feta & strawberry salad - the strawberries add sweetness and the feta adds a creamy, savoury contrast.


  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • ½ small red onion, peeled and very finely sliced
  • 80g feta cheese, in small cubes
  • 8 ripe but not soft strawberries, sliced lengthways into 4
  • 2 tbsp lightly browned pine nuts

For the dressing:

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper into a bowl.
  2. Whisk for 20 seconds, then gradually add the oil, whisking to emulsify nicely.
  3. Next place the spinach, onion and cheese into a bowl and lightly mix together.
  4. Add the strawberries and JUST fold in, do not break them up.
  5. Spoon over half the dressing and season lightly and fold in.
  6. Place on a plate and sprinkle over the nuts and serve extra vinaigrette on the side.
  7. All must be a room temperature to get the best flavours out.
