We went strawberry picking a couple weeks ago as part of our CSA day. The berries were on special for that day only and only 1 dollar per pound. For organic strawberries, that is crazy! Well I was the crazy lady who left with 32 lbs of berries. We ate quite a few lbs fresh, made some strawberry syrup, and then froze the rest.
I figured all these frozen strawberries would be perfect for a vinaigrette dressing. I like to make sure I switch up our dressings frequently since we eat a lot of salads and want to make sure salads doing get boring. This is something a little sweet for a salad like Pear and Goat cheese or Apple, Raisin and Walnut.
Dave claimed it his favorite yet.
