1/3 granulated or raw sugar
2/3 cu balsamic or maybe apple or sweet rice cider vinegar

1/2 tsp black pepper (may be freshly ground)

Directions:
Directions:
Coarsely chop strawberries with a knife or by food processing with a few pulses.
Add sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and oil. Pulse again a few times (or add to chopped berries in a bowl and combine with a whisk.) You want some berry pieces in the dressing.
Top greens (any greens will do, but baby spinach, along with other baby greens seems to be the best combo here) with slivered almonds. (You could use other nuts too, such as cashews or pecans.)
Either toss salad with the dressing, or place on the side for individuals to use to their taste.

Personal Notes:
You can also add antioxidants to this by adding craisins, blueberries or blackberries and other dark-colored berries. You can also make the dressing from blueberries or raspberries, but strawberries go best with baby greens. You can add celery to the greens as well, for crunch and a fresh taste. Jicama also works well here. Experiment with other light flavored salad ingredients.
Buy strawberries with stems attached if you can, or pick yourself, keeping stems on. store in fridge and don't ever wash berries for anything until you want to use them.
