An unexpectedly lovely combination- homemade corn tortillas used in goat cheese quesadillas topped with a version of this red chard caper saute, smoky salsa, goat yogurt and chopped fresh veggies including fresh torn basil. Nothing like a homemade tortilla, mmm.

And continuing my new feature, the Dressing of the Week, last week we enjoyed a sweet and fruity STRAWBERRY DRESSING, adapted from Vegetarian Times. If you haven’t added strawberries to your salad, I highly recommend it. It really adds a whole new dimension to the salad experience!
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp. sugar
1/2 medium shallot or equivalent red onion
1/2 clove garlic, peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
Blend all ingredients except the olive oil and water. Add your water, combine, and then slowly add your olive oil and let emulsify. Enjoy!
This recipe originally contained an entire CUP of olive oil. Since I don’t really want to consume that much oil in a week (cough cough) I lightened it. You can play with the olive oil and water mixture, or add more vinegar to taste.
Yummy additions to a salad with this dressing:
Definitely add some fresh strawberries to your salad to celebrate the strawberry dressing!
