Strawberry Basil Salad

15 Mar

I am very lucky to live next to the Strawberry Capital of Florida, Plant City. Berries are very reasonable this time of the year. Today I made very refreshing salad dressing with fresh strawberries. I love Florida. Please remind me this in few months when I am complaining about the heat and humidity.

Strawberry Dressing

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 3 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tbs fresh basil chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor.

Salad

  • Mixed greens
  • 1 carrot, gradated
  • 1 cup strawberries sliced

Toss the greens and carrots with the dressing. Top with sliced strawberries.
