Husband "Loves Strawberries" - always bringing them home. Had about a cup of leftover ones cut-up w/sugar, it was a 98 degree day and felt like having a salad, instead of cooking a big hot meal that day. Having some leftover grilled steak, my mind kicked into gear and used those berries to make a dressing for a salad. Thought my husband was going to loose his mind over how delicious it turned out .... "two" days later he requested that I put it together again, only used chicken that time.
cut-up fresh strawberries, that have been sugared and have produced their own juice
ground chipotle pepper
SUGGESTED SALAD BOWL ITEMS:
cut-up lettuce, red onion 1/4" slices/quartered, zucchini or yellow squash - thinly sliced, fresh nectarine - bite size pieces, avocado cubes, bite size cooked chicken or grilled steak/thinly sliced 1/4-1/8" thick
1In a small bowl mix together and blend the mayonnaise, sour cream,buttermilk and sugar.
2Add and stir in the strawberries ... next add the lemon juice and chipotle pepper ... stir and mix all together. Set aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
In "two" individual bowls or "one" medium-large bowl, place cut-up lettuce ... followed by the onions, squash slices, avocado, nectarines and either chicken or steak slices ... ladle the Fresh Strawberry Dressing over the salad bowl fixings ... and serve.
