It is strawberry season! Today’s recipe is a wonderful salad dressing for those light spring salads.

1 cup whole strawberries
1 cup olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped (1 tsp dry) or other herbs that might be good.

Put everything in the blender, mix up and add salt, pepper and herbs to taste.

Alternately, for a very impressive look, roughly crush the berries, leaving some chunks, shake everything in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. This will make a dark red dressing with strawberry bits in it, perfect for dressing a mixed green salad. Try it with some local smoked gouda!
