Author Notes: Making this recipe has become a must whenever we have strawberries in the house and it’s so easy, anyone can do it. My favorite way to eat it is by itself as a side salad of sorts, but it’s the perfect accompaniment to lunch, alongside a sandwich or on top of a salad. I have even used these strawberries in making a dessert. It travels well, as long as you have a container with a tight lid. I’ve packaged it up to send to work with a friend of mine, before, as part of her lunch, no problem.

The sweet crispness of the strawberries and fresh herbs, the hint of orange, and the tanginess of the white wine vinegar is refreshing and always leaves you, and everybody else wanting more…so make extra! ~ TFFG

*Note- If you don’t have blood orange olive oil, use orange zest instead! Also, you can use either fresh Mint, or fresh Basil. I have used both and either is a delightful addition.

Thank you Sagegreen! =)
Blood Orange Vinegar sounds wonderful! I will have to look for that so I can try it. Perhaps it would work if you added regular Olive oil to it and then lessened the amount of white wine vinegar in the recipe. You will have to try and see!
