Grilled strawberry salad

Cucumbers add refreshing crunch to this summer fruit dish.

"This possibly my favorite dish of summer because of the way it delivers so many flavors at once," says chef Dan Kluger of Loring Place in New York City. "It has sweetness from the perfectly ripe strawberries, a bit of smokiness which they take on from the grill, sour notes from the vinaigrette, and some bright mint is mixed in, too. It's a simple, but surprising salad that is definitely a crowd-pleaser."
