This is the good stuff: local strawberries and spargel, together?!

Right in the parking lot of Praktiker!
Right now is the height of strawberry and Spargel season. Both are for sale in grocery stores, in roadside stands, and even in kiosks outside of retail stores! Around here, we're lucky to have  Pfälzisch strawberries and Spargel which were grown around here in the forest region.

I bought some strawberries (Erdbeeren) and white Spargel and made a wonderful salad that I learned to make in the cooking class. It's a salad with cooked Spargel that is then combined with fresh strawberries served in a crème fraîche sauce supplemented with vinegar, orange juice, and fresh green peppercorns. I know this sounds like a weird combination but it's quite delicious. I made it for some friends and they agreed, too :)
