They are super easy to prepare and so delicious.  You can make the vinaigrettes year round, but I am really looking forward to picking fresh strawberries and blueberries in the fields this summer and making some batches in Mason jars. You can serve them on spinach and kale salad, or on any of your favourite salads.
