Let's Make It: {Fresh Strawberries with poppy seed dressing}

Every time the
Naptime Chef
comes up on my
Google Reader,
I know it will be something
positively appetizing!

This is the latest installment of my Powernap column. The series where I share quick, easy food that can be made for all kinds of situations. Powernaps are short and sweet, and so are these recipes. These are the things I make in a jiffy when I need a quick snack, am in the mood for a recipe experiment, or simply need to clean out the pantry.
There are many, many variations of poppy seed dressing and I dreamt up this one based on what I believed would be the best flavors to contrast with the sweet berries. I kept it light with a simple oil, vinegar and salt mixture. Many dressings call for mayonnaise, which I don’t really like that much. With my daughter off at camp — we had gone strawberry picking that morning — I had plenty of time to whisk together the dressing and treat myself to a big bowl for lunch. The sweet strawberries were cloaked in a wonderful acidic dressing, they tasted like a delicious sweet-tart candy. The perfect powernap recipe, indeed.
