Strawberry-Kumquat Salad

Although strawberry season just wrapped up, I couldn’t let summer pass by without sharing this Strawberry-Kumquat Salad with honey dressing. It’s a simple, quick and easy recipe that would be perfect for summer entertaining. You can make it for a crowd, just double or triple the recipe. If you’re like my cousin, wondering what Kumquat is, it’s best prescribed as a tiny, grape like orange. They’re tart and sweet, just pop them in your mouth like you would grapes.

    I’ve never tried kumquats – this salad looks so good and the dressing puts it over the top I’d love to try it!
