STRAWBERRY SALAD WITH BALSAMIC-CARDAMOM DRESSING



This is one of my favorite fruit salads because it is easy and quick to prepare and . . . is perfect anytime.   Because of the berry fruit, it is very light but the balsamic dressing adds just enough body for it to hold it;s own in cold weather as well.
