Strawberry Avocado Salad

by Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

I always look forward to the early Spring when the first of the berries start coming in. They won’t be local for months here in Ohio, but I still am tempted by the offerings at the market. And one of my favorite ways to  have them often, without overindulging in sweets, is to pop a few on top of a salad here or there.

I find  the flavors go wonderfully with avocado, chevre, and macadamias, so simple as it is, it makes a very satisfying salad plate.

The strawberry vinegar I make myself at home, but you can opt to use store bought of any berry vinegar variety.

I hope you enjoy!
