Strawberry Fennel Salad

Word has it that (unofficial) summer is here. That means less baking and roasting… more grilling and salad tossing!

Whole Foods has been selling some wickedly delicious strawberries for the past week or so. You would think that strawberries wouldn’t hit their peak till summer, but we have this little thing going on called a DROUGHT… and I think that’s really boosting the strawberry game around here. They’re so unbelievably yummy that I just had to throw them in my client’s salad. Here’s the result!
