A Summer Salad

Seasonal and Simple

The juiciest season of the year has arrived…strawberry season. Here in coastal Virginia, we can’t get enough of these succulent red berries. Indeed, at our monthly Chefs’ Table cooking class we celebrated these local treasures with a recipe so good, we just had to share. Chef Stephen Marsh from Norfolk’s hottest restaurant, Legrand Kitchen, featured delicious strawberries locally-sourced from Pungo, along with Virginia ham and burrata, to create a refreshing salad that you can easily recreate at home to impress your friends and family.

Pair with Shine Riesling to really make your tastebuds dance.
