There is nothing quite like fresh strawberries!
Here's a lovely way to infuse their sweet deliciousness alongside some of your garden greens. If you're growing your own garden greens go grab them for this recipe!
Serves 4 -6
What you need -
4 cups of mixed greens: Any combination of your following favourites Romain, Iceberg, Spinach, Kale, Arugula, Dandelion, Rapini, Chard etc
2 cups chopped cooked chicken (optional)
2 cups Strawberries
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1/4 cup crumbled goat or feta cheese (optional)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
You can also add some protein to this recipe. Cooked chicken would be my top pick!
Tare your green mix, chop your strawberries and onion. Add everything in your salad bowl, mix once or twice and it's ready to eat! If you fancy a dressing to go with this tasty number see my suggestion below.
Balsamic pairs really well with strawberry. You can make a strawberry balsamic dressing to really enhance the flavour profiles.
To do this you'll need -
1 cup strawberries
1/4 cup balsamic
1/4 cup Olive Oil (The tastier the better! I love extra virgin!)
1 garlic clove, finely minced
Blend all of these ingredients in a food processor or with a magic wand (take your time and use a deep bowl so you don't splatter yourself!)
