Toss all the ingredients in a large salad bowl by paying special attention to feta cheese cubes as not to crush them. Combine all the ingredients of a dressing in a separate bowl and add it to this mixture by stirring slowly so all the ingredients are covered. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve with your favorite meal. The sweetness of strawberries and the flavor of feta cheese gives this salad a unique taste each time you had a bite.
