Strawberry Salad

strawberry saladI don’t normally eat berries out of season, but the organic strawberries have been sweet and delicious these days.
The dressing should be made ahead of time, kept in a sealed container.
Serves 6
Strawberry dressing
1/2 pint strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1 tbsp berry vinegar
2 tsp pomegranate molasses
2 tsp rose water
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp pink peppercorns, crushed with a mortar and pestle or the back of a pan
Place all of the ingredients except the olive oil into a blender.  Blend until smooth, then slowly pour in the oil until it is all emulsified.  Taste for
salt and pepper, then chill until needed.

1 pound mixed lettuces
1/2 pint strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced very thinly
1/4 cup crumbled feta
Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste

Toss all the ingredients with enough dressing to coat the lettuces to your liking.
