We love this salad as it super refreshing and it has “GIRLY” written all over it! Bright pink dressing, colorful salad and notes of aromatic flowers are just some of those girly traits. However, guys you are going to love this salad too as it just hits the spot on these super-hot dog days of summer. We are going to be up in the 90’s F (mid 30's C) again this weekend. Who the heck wants to cook? Not us! You will not have to turn on any burners, BBQ’s or anything that generates heat. The only appliance that is needed is a food processor.

Apple cider vinegar – 3 tablespoons

Ginger – 1 inch knob peeled and grated (fresh) if using dried ground ginger reduce to ½ teaspoon

Strawberries – 1 cup hulled and cut in half
