Description

Fresh strawberries may seem like an unusual addition to this salad, but they add their own kind of sweetness to the mix and balances out the savory ingredients. After all, they are just a fresh alternative to raisins, dried cranberries, and other dried fruits that are much more common, as are apples and pears. Plus, strawberries pair up nicely with balsamic vinegar, which is used to in the verdant and vibrant cilantro dressing.
