Dressing: Take 1/2 of fresh strawberries(rinsed and topped), and put in food processor. Chop until smooth with a few chunks remaining and Mix with vinaigrette. Pour desired amount of vinaigrette over salad and serve.

Chef note: Try deep frying a fresh flour tortilla (for a tocao salad type bowl) by using a ladle and pressing the middle of the tortilla gently down into a deep fat fryer 350* and forming a bowl as it fries. Keep a pair of tongs handy to remove tortilla from the fryer. It only takes a couple minutes at most for each one. Load it with salad when it cools and its a wonderful colorful, delicious salad.
