Rainy Morning Strawberries with Herbes de Province


I woke up this morning with the delicate pitter-patter of raindrops on the window and imagined Ted dancing gleefully in his fields. The perfume of thyme and lavender, fresh and wet, wafted in through the kitchen window as I sleepily pulled out a box of Tedís strawberries. I ate half the box then chopped up the rest and dressed them as follows:


  • ľ C. Vegetable Oil
  • 1Tbsp. Blueberry vinegar (from Boates - sold at Local Source, or the Seaport Farmerís Market)
  • 1Tbsp. Maple syrup
  • Ĺ tsp. Green peppercorns (freshly ground)
  • pinch sea salt


Emulsify the ingredients by whisking together with a fork.



From the garden I chose what seemed fragrant and eager to be picked.

  • 4-5 lavender buds
  • Thyme
  • Mint
  • Chive flowers
  • Basil
  • And if I had roses in my garden, I would have plucked them too


Chop the herbs finely and add them to the vinaigrette. Cover the strawberries with the mixture and let it all mingle for a few hours before eating it with a barbequed white fish.
