Strawberry Salad with Pine Nuts & Yogurt Balsamic Dressing

I incorporate strawberries all year round in my cooking regime. But in the summer they are abundant… at the farm stands, on menus to inspire, and as a special in the markets.

When I saw these local strawberries I knew these were going to be showcased on this page–in some sort of salad. This salad combines simple local produce with the texture of the toasted pine nuts whipped up in a simple tangy creamy dressing.

Soak up strawberry season!
