Strawberry and Cherry Tomato Salad

In summer, I love the combination of strawberries and tomatoes together - I even have a jam recipe using both! This light salad is a great way to showcase both of them, with a creamy mascarpone dressing, fresh herbs, cucumber and arugula.

    I haven’t had a chance to make this but reading the ingredients a few times I think there may be a missing comma between champagne vinegar and white vinegar. I think they meant that you use 2 tsp of one or the other two listed. I could be wrong, of course, but that’s how I understood the verbiage after reading it a few times.

    I was a little confused with the quantities of the vinegar. Was it supposed to be 2 tsp of each or only 1 or 2 of the vinegars? I used the white wine and the ACV. The dressing was a bit thick.
