Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Photo courtesy of the Cooking Corner.
  Berry season is here and strawberries are one of my favorites. With the season comes strawberry pies, strawberries in fruit salad and strawberry shortcakes. A few weeks ago I even did a strawberry cheesecake pie. Yum.
    Recently I found some romaine lettuce on sale and paired them with some strawberries that a friend gave me. What an interesting flavor combo. The vinaigrette gave it an unusual flavor without being over powering. 

Strawberry-Basil Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
1-1/2 T. olive oil
1-1/2 T.  balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 cup sliced strawberries (1/2 pound)
1/4 cup vertically sliced vidalia or other sweet onion
1/8 cup torn fresh basil


Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir well with a whisk. 

Add lettuce, strawberries, onion and basil. Toss to coat. Let chill for about 30 minutes for flavors to blend.

Serves 3.
