Strawberry Salad

I LOVE strawberry anything.  Strawberry jam, strawberry dressing, strawberry smoothies, chocolate-covered strawberries, strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar (maybe that’s a Southern thing), plain ol’ strawberries.  This week, I found some delicious-looking strawberries at the store and decided we needed a strawberry salad for dinner one night.  Made with homemade strawberry vinaigrette, it’s tangy and sweet and everything a salad should be!
