I came up with this recipe of a Strawberry Feta Salad with Avocados, from all the fond memories I had growing up on a farm. As a child, our family had a never-ending supply of these luscious fruits and avocados. My aunts not only ate these perfumed avocados from their  family orchard at every meal, but they would create concoctions such as facial creams for their morning cleansing routine.

I also remember watching them as they slathered smashed avocados on their arms and necks, bathing themselves in this vitamin-enriched lotion.

Today, I enjoy the use of avocados in many of my dishes not only because of the sentimental memories of the old farm, but also for their nutritional value. Seasonally, avocados and strawberries are in the market together, so I decided to marry the two in this quick and simple salad for you to enjoy on these leisurely warm summer days. The old saying is: what grows together, cooks together!
