Author Notes: This strawberry basil salad is incredibly easy to make. A fruit salad with a vinaigrette is surprisingly delicious. Strawberry jam and white balsamic vinegar make a slightly sweet and tangy flavor combination without overwhelming the sweet basil's aroma and taste. Although regular balsamic vinegar works well, I often use white balsamic vinegar to maintain the bright redness of the berries and fresh green color of the witch

Serves 4

  • 2 pints strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Place jam in a bowl and whisk in vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil. Season the dressing with sea salt and black pepper. Add the strawberries and basil to bowl and toss to coat evenly in strawberry vinaigrette dressing.
