I’m not kidding once I say I wait anxiously all 12 months for the teeny tiny candy and juicy native strawberries to hit the native produce stands and farmers markets. I like these little berries a lot I often find yourself shopping for a flat every week. I incorporate them in to all the pieces I can consider and stuff a ton of them straight into my mouth, opting to freeze no matter I can’t eat earlier than spoilage for my winter stash.

The strawberry balsamic dressing used on this salad is vibrant and fruity and completely good for these contemporary spring berries or perhaps a mid-winter decide me up as a result of it may be made with contemporary -or- frozen strawberries, and is an ideal method to eek the life out of a few of these previous their prime berries too.

That is one in every of my favourite salads, and one in every of my favourite issues about it’s all the textures, colours and flavors; the brightly coloured strawberries, tangy dressing, juicy rooster and sure, crunchy croutons made out of my AIP waffles, merely cubed up and tossed with somewhat fats and onion salt (from Dealer Joes!) earlier than a visit within the oven to crisp them up. The most effective half although is the dressing/garnish could be made with any semi-soft in season fruit, nectarines are particularly good too!
