Red Wine Vinaigrette

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl until the oil is emulsified.


For Serving

4 cups strawberries, hulled and halved (large berries quartered)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more to taste

Kosher salt


1 medium English or 4 Persian cucumbers, cut into 1/2-inch obliques (about 2 cups)

1 pint Sungold tomatoes, halved

2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeño chile (with seeds)

1/4 cup basil ribbons (1/4-inch ribbons)

1/4 cup mint ribbons (1/4-inch ribbons)

Red Wine Vinaigrette

Flaky sea salt


Prepare a hot grill or preheat a grill pan over high heat. In a medium bowl, toss 1 1/2 cups of the strawberries with the oil and season with salt and sugar. Grill the cut side of the strawberries until charred, about 1 minute (be careful not to overcook the strawberries; you want them to keep their structure). Transfer to a large bowl and add the raw strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, jalapeño, and herbs. Add the vinaigrette and toss well. Transfer to a serving bowl, drizzle with olive oil, season with flaky salt, and serve.
