Strawberry Salad with White Balsamic Vinegar & Fresh Thyme

If you’re using fresh local strawberries in season, you probably won’t need the added honey. The lime juice and balsamic vinegar bring out the natural sweetness of the berries, so you may want to taste as you go. This recipe is delicious on its own but even better when served with fresh whipped cream and coconut shortbread cookies!

Preparation

Remove the tops of the strawberries using a melon baller or paring knife and, depending on the size, cut in halves or quarters, to match the approximate size of the blackberries. Place in a medium bowl along with the blackberries and mango pieces.

Add lime zest and juice, balsamic vinegar and honey (optional). Gently toss to distribute fruit evenly and garnish with fresh thyme leaves. Serve at room temperature or chill and let marinate several hours. Enjoy! Serves 8 as a salad or dessert.
