Strawberry and Butter Lettuce Salad

Strawberry and Butter Lettuce Salad

It’s early May and what’s glorious is seeing the first of the spring and summer local fruit hitting the farm stands of South Jersey. There’s nothing like fresh spring strawberries, and I got an overflowing basket of them this morning from my nearest farmstand today. They had just been picked that morning. So what could be better for lunch than a strawberry salad, featuring the first pick of butter lettuce from my own garden? Tossed with toasted pine nuts, sliced onion, and a quick honey vinaigrette, it was just divine.

I love this time of year in New Jersey!
