Strawberry Salad with a Balsamic Reduction

By

This light, refreshing salad combines the sweetness of strawberries with the tanginess of balsamic vinegar and goat cheese. It’s the perfect appetizer for a summer meal.

Tip: If you like, use fresh blueberries or fresh raspberries instead of strawberries. You needn’t even chop the blueberries or raspberries; leave them whole.

Preparation

Step 1

To prepare the reduction, heat the vinegar, sugar, and strawberries in a 2-qt stockpot until boiling. Reduce the heat medium-low and cook until the mixture thickens. (It will reduce by about half). Strain and let the mixture cool.

To assemble the salad, place the first 6 ingredients in a large salad bowl, add the extra virgin oil and balsamic reduction, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss gently until the greens are fully coated with the dressing.
