How To Make summer's best strawberry salad

    For the salad, add your fresh greens to your salad bowl. You can make this as one big salad or individual ones. I roughly chop the strawberry's and add to the greens. Sprinkle with blue cheese.

    For the candied walnuts, place the brown sugar in a sauté pan, slowly melt the sugar and add water. Once sugar melted add the walnuts (you can also use almonds) and sauté for a minute or so. Then remove from heat. Top your salad with these. FYI, if they sit they will harden.

    For the strawberry vinaigrette, add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour desired amount over salad and toss.
