  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups (500 mL) sliced BC Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped fine

  • (Optional: add nuts such as pecans or walnuts)

 

Instructions

  1. In large bowl, toss salad greens.
  2. In small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring vinegar to a boil. Boil uncovered until slightly thickened, 1-3 minutes. In small bowl, drizzle vinegar over strawberries and toss gently. Set aside.
  3. In small bowl, whisk together oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Any excess vinegar from strawberries, drain off and whisk into dressing.
