For this simple salad, strawberries are the star of the dish bringing in their signature sweet-sour sharp tang with every fork-ful. The walnut and pesto vinaigrette then adds a much needed mellow yet refreshing taste. Lastly, you can even substitute the walnut with other kinds of textures like pecans or hazelnuts to make it your own.
