Summer Summer Summertime




Summer's in full swing and there's nothing better then fresh summer fruit. This summer we've been partial to strawberries. I came across this funky salad and had to give it a try.

Sweet & Tart Strawberry Salad

It was ridiculously easy to prepare and you probably have all the ingredients on hand already. The ingredient list may sound a little intimidating, i'd say have your guests taste it before you let them know what's in it. I made the recipe exactly as written and served immediately. The longer the salad sat, the less tart it became.



The combo of sweet brown sugar and tart balsamic vinegar with a touch of spice from the pepper takes strawberries to another level. One taste and you'll see why this salad is a showstopper!

TGIFridays used to have a salad that was strawberry and balsamic vinegar with grilled chicken and parmesan cheese. So good!!!

This salad rocked, especially loved how the brown sugar sorta crystallized and gave it a yummy crunch factor.
