Who knew a strawberry basil lemon dressing would be so tangy? If you like tangy foods, you will love this. Sutton thought it was great and would give it a 4. Me personally, I would give it a 2. The salad itself was not bad, minus the dressing. I loved that it was quick and easy to make (if you have a good blender). But that is where the fun ended. It was tough for me to get it down.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp pure maple syrup, to taste
  • fine grain sea salt & black pepper, to taste (I used 1/4 tsp each)
  • Slivered almonds, toasted
  • shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted
  • mixed greens
  • strawberries, chopped
  • chiffonade fresh basil

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 300F. Toast the almonds for about 7-8 minutes and then remove and add the coconut. Toast another 2-4 minutes, or until lightly golden, watching closely so the coconut doesn’t burn.
  • 2. In a food processor, add the strawberries, basil, lemon juice, and oil. Process until smooth. Add in the salt, pepper, and maple syrup to taste and process again.
  • 3. Assemble the salad as desired. Leftover dressing should keep for at least a few days in a sealed container.
