Savory Strawberry Salad

How about a quick simple strawberry salad? We had a market run today and bought some basil and fresh strawberries. At first, we wanted to use them to make a dessert,  but at the market, we got some fresh basil with an incredible smell.  We then decided it would be a good combo for the smell alone and of course the taste.  We added some nuts to give some crunchiness to the dish. Et voila! It’s a quick easy summer dish that is refreshing.  Take advantage of strawberry season and make this. 


1 pound of fresh strawberries
1 tbsp of honey
1 tsp of fresh lavender
¼ cup of almonds*
2 drops of almond extract (Optional)
2 leaves of basil
¼ tsp of olive oil

1.     Wash your strawberries and cut in half or in 4 depending on preference and set aside in a bowl
2.     Add the almonds, honey, lavender, the almond extract and the basil.  Add some filet of olive oil and mix gently together.
3.     Et voila! Now enjoy!

Bon appetit a tous!


*You could toast your almonds if you prefer, we did since Rody can't eat them raw.
