    Is the strawberry and cucumber summer salad a P2 or P3 recipe?
    And if so, how many strawberries are used in the recipe and vinaigrette dressing?

      This can be used on P2. The bottom of the recipe states that it counts as 1 vegetable, 1 fruit serving. Take your allotted strawberry serving and pull one out for use in the dressing. Slice the rest for the salad.
