2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
1 1/2 cups feta cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl.

To make the dressing: Add all ingredients into a mason jar. Shake until well combined. Using a piece of lettuce for tasting, dip it into the dressing and add salt and pepper to taste.
