For the consomme:

  • 16 oz strawberries, stems removed, quartered

  • Just enough water to to cover the strawberries

  • 1 large bowl** bowl should fit just barely inside the pot, to act as a double boiler

  • 1 medium pot

  • Plastic wrap

  • Mesh strainer

For the vinaigrette:

  • ½ tsp microplaned ginger

  • 3 T strawberry consomme

  • 1 T Champagne vinegar

  • 2 T Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tsp dijon mustard

  • Season with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper

For the Strawberry Salad:

  • 1 head of butter leaf lettuce, leaves trimmed and left whole

  • 8 strawberries, thinly sliced

  • ½ english cucumber, thinly sliced


For the consumme:
  1. Fill a medium pot with a few inches of hot water and bring to a simmer

  2. While the water is being brought to a simmer, place the quartered strawberries in a large bowl and just barely cover with the berries with water.

  3. Cover the bowl of strawberries tightly with plastic wrap

  4. Once the water is simmering, place the bowl on top of the pot and allow to gently steep the strawberries in the warm liquid (this allows the strawberry flavor to be extracted without harshly cooking the strawberries, giving you FRESH strawberry taste)

  5. Allow to double boil for 2 hours (checking to make sure you always have a little water simmering under the bowl)

  6. Turn off heat and allow the berries/water to come to room temperature

  7. Strain off the strawberries and you are left with the strawberry gold!

  8. You can now use this to flavor cocktails, frosting, or in this case, use as a base for a vinaigrette.

For Vinaigrette/Salad:

  1. Whisk together all of the vinaigrette ingredients until well incorporated
  2. Toss the butter lettuce with desired amount of vinaigrette and then stack the whole lettuce leaves on top of each other biggest to smallest.
  3. Top with sliced strawberries and cucumbers.
