Avocado Strawberry Salad

Fresh strawberries are one of summer's joys. Inspired by my daughter, I came up with this salad. Her version has lime juice and cilantro, which would be equally delicious, but I had no limes in the house, and the man I love and cook for detests cilantro. 

Avocado Strawberry Salad

fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced if large
avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
candied ginger, finely chopped ( I used 2 teaspoons of this to one avocado)
freshly chopped parsley

Combine all and gently toss with raspberry vinaigrette. (Mine has a hint of mustard in it.) Serve over lettuce, or on its own. Simple, and oh, so delicious.
