Les Frises Vinaigrette et Leurs Pousses Vertes Strawberries need not be confined to dessert, says Denis Pelletier, chef at Restaurant Le Mouilin de St. Laurent on Ile d'Orleans.
The island is one of the province's lushest strawberry-growing areas. The chef suggests serving this colourful salad with a semi-soft cheese as St. Nectaire.
