I was invited to a Strawberry Tea today. It was a fundraising event for Breast Cancer & the theme was 'strawberries'
Everyone was asked to make a contribution to the lunch. With so many sweet things being made I opted for a savoury strawberry salad.
There's nothing quite as summery as a bowl of perfectly ripe strawberries tossed in black pepper, and mixed with soft goats cheese & ribbons of salted cucumber. Topped off with a drizzle of really grassy extra virgin olive oil.
Served with some crusty bread or BBQ'd chicken or pork this salad is heaven on a plate. The sweet sour of the strawberries is the perfect contrast to the the creamery goats cheese, and salty watery cucumber, brings a coolness to proceedings.
You can add a dash or two of balsamic vinegar or a squeeze of lemon juice but really it's not needed.
Do you have a favourite summer salad?
That's it for now ...
