Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

I will be having family over this weekend to watch fireworks across the lake. I wanted to serve up something different, that also captured the freshest in season ingredients from the garden. A true sign that summer is here, fresh strawberries. This strawberry poppy seed vinaigrette recipe is easy to whip up.  With its distinct strawberry sweetness, even the kids will love it. I use balsamic vinegar to naturally enhance the strawberries flavors and sweetness.

I drizzled the vinaigrette on a plate, topped off with a bed of fresh lettuce. Sprinkled a few strawberries over the lettuce and there you have it. This vinaigrette is packed with flavor and is a refreshing addition to any salad.

For the greens in this salad you can use any variety of lettuce. I used a romaine and red leaf lettuce, as well as sorrel. Sorrel tastes like a green apple and adds another unique element to this salad.

This vinaigrette would also go well with beets, grilled chicken, or even grilled steak. Let me know in the comments below what else you try with this vinaigrette.

Strawberry salad

The romaine and red leaf lettuce, strawberries, and sorrel used in this salad were picked from the garden this morning. I strongly encourage growing your own produce when possible. Gardening is both fun and rewarding.

Pineapple Ice Cream

Ice cream is one of those things you can enjoy anytime of the year, no matter what part of the world you are in. Although it is winter where I am at, this pineapple flavored ice cream brings me to a far away tropical island.
