50 mL (1/4 cup) pecan halves
1 L (4 cups) strawberries, hulled
30 mL (2 tbsp) balsamic vinegar
10 mL (2 tsp) olive oil
5 mL (1 tsp) light brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). In a small baking pan, toast the pecans for 7 minutes or until crisp. When cool enough to handle, coarsely chop.

Whisk the vinegar, oil, brown sugar, salt, and pepper into the mashed strawberries. Add the lettuce, cucumber, dill, and sliced strawberries, tossing to combine. Sprinkle the salad with the goat cheese and pecans.
