Emma Dean’s recipe for Strawberry and Basil Salad

emma dean

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 punnet strawberries, green tops removed and then sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp caster sugar (depending on the sweetness of the strawberries)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Small bunch of basil, finely sliced
  • 1 tub Crème Fraiche (or about 200-300ml)
  • Toasted coconut, to serve

METHOD

  1. Combine the strawberries, caster sugar and balsamic vinegar together, and set aside to macerate for 5 minutes.
  2. Gently combine the basil and crème fraiche together so as to not loosen the crème fraiche up too much.
  3. Using pretty glasses, arrange the strawberries and crème fraiche together in layers, topping with the toasted coconut and fresh basil leaves!

Enjoy! This is one of my favourite summer desserts!
