Summer Strawberry Salad with Maple Dressing

Summer's here and that's when I make this wonderful salad.  Easy to do and gives me lots of time for my knitting and quilting.

This salad has evolved over the past 10 years and I've tweeked it to suit my family's favorite ingredients.  I make it in June and July when the strawberries are in season.  It's made with local  strawberries and maple syrup and maple vinegar from a nearby maple sugar bush. 


Iceberg or romaine lettuce
1 Granny Smith apple
Strawberries (two or three for each serving)
Sugar glazed pecans
Blue cheese (I use Castello Crumbled Danish Blue Cheese)

Place torn  lettuce leaves on individual salad plates.  Place several thin slices of Granny Smith apple and a couple of sliced strawberries on the lettuce.   Top it off with half a dozen homemade sugar glazed pecans and a sprinkling of crumbled blue cheese.  Pour the Maple Dressing over the salad.

Maple Dressing:

¼ cup Pure Maple Vinegar
½ cup canola oil
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 – 3 tablespoons Medium or Amber Maple Syrup
Pinch of salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard

Combine all ingredients and shake well. 

Tip:  Store any leftover dressing in the fridge and remove about an hour before you plan to use it.

Give it a try.  I am sure you’ll enjoy it. Have a great summer!!
