I picked strawberries today.
They were so tiny and soft, I thought making a
dressing with them might be a good thing.
After looking at some recipes online,
I played with ingredients until I thought it tasted yummy!
It also gave me a chance to use some lemon thyme...
a new-to-my-garden herb and was smelling so good,
I was dying to try it out on something!
I doubled the recipe below just because that's how many
strawberries I had. But I don't think we'll have any
trouble using it up. I can imagine it as a glaze on
chicken or salmon, too. Yum.

1/4 t ground black pepper

until very well combined and liquefied. Chill.
