Strawberry season!! That means two good things. Winter is over! Or at least the end is in sight. And strawberries!! Thank you, Lindasue, for sharing this one. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! The way the salty bacon plays off the sweet strawberries, the surprise of the poppyseed dressing, the variety the crunch of the almonds provides . . . it’s like a well-written chick flick. Only edible. Mm-hmm….

2 c strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
