Strawberry and Tomato Salad with Fresh Herbs

I was happily surprised to find fresh strawberries in the CSA box this week. The strawberries are an experiment for our greenhouse and supplies are limited, so I wasn't expecting to get some of the precious strawberries in the middle of winter. They're not quite as amazing as fresh Quebec strawberries in the summer, but I think they have more flavour than the gigantic strawberries I grew up thinking were strawberries. Paired with some delicious CSA box cherry tomatoes, this made an excellent salad.

1. Cut tomatoes and strawberries in half (or quarters if they're large).
2. Cut herbs into strips.
3. In a bowl, mix together tomatoes, strawberries, herbs, and other ingredients.
4. Top with pepper to taste.
