This is the perfect summer salad when strawberries are at their peak. You can interchange any nut you like in this salad. I like to buy nuts when they are on sale and freeze them in 1 cup portions.
I do not like goat cheese so I tend to leave that off or substitute it for fresh mozzarella.
I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Cookbook but it is also available online.
