Strawberry, Avocado & Asiago Spring Salad

This salad is inspired by one of my all time favorites at The Osprey hotel in Beaver Creek. This is my riff on the fabulous chef David Burton Sanchez’s recipe.

David was not such a fan of me tossing a handful of capers into this, but I love ’em and went for it anyway. You my friends, can make the choice whether or not to use them in your salad. Completely optional.

Chef uses a gorgeous Champagne Vinaigrette in his salad.
