Strawberries are gloriously in season now. I've been buying organic ones, which do cost more, but each one has the sweetness of 2 or 3 regular berries, so I'll never go back.
Try this salad dressing, made in the blender, my favorite way. It's so yummy that you may just eat it with a spoon and forget the salad. But if you do go green and leafy, throw in some goat cheese and toasted nuts too. And a sliced strawberry wouldn't go astray. This recipe makes enough dressing for the week.
