They get a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of cumin seeds, salt and pepper, before being tossed for mixing purposes and then spread out on the pan. Viviane recommends using our Everday Fresh oil to make the fries.

Total baking time: around 30-35 minutes.Bon appétit,California Olive Ranch Master Miller Bob Singletary

In many of my salads, I pack as much flavor and texture as possible into the dressing, using it to bridge other ingredients or add layers of complexity to the dish. Not so with this salad! Here, I only need the simplest of vinaigrettes—vinegar, oil, and salt—to tie everything together. Why? Because I’m using two ingredients that are loaded with flavor: super-sweet, apricot-colored Sungold tomatoes and strawberries, which become even more intense with a turn on the grill. As with any strawberry-based dish, try to skip the supermarket and seek out locally grown strawberries in the late spring and early summer. There are hundreds of varieties grown in the U.S.; Tristar and Earliglow are two of my favorites, but I generally buy the smallest berries on offer, which will have the most intense flavor. The Takeaway Strawberries can really take the heat of a grill, but it’s vital to season them right before you throw them on, or they’ll become too wet to get a good sear. It can be tricky to grill smaller strawberries, so use a wire grill basket, which also prevents you from having to move the strawberries around with tongs, which can easily damage them.
