Cucumbers and basil are plentiful in my garden right now. Although strawberries are finished for the year in our neck of the woods, they are still plentiful and affordable. Here’s a very simple, elegant and super-refreshing salad that adults and children love. It’s also a beautiful complement to any grilled pork or fish dish.

Cucumber, Strawberry and Basil salad is just that simple.

  • 1 package of strawberries, washed, and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1. Peel, core and slice cucumbers and chill in refrigerator
2. Combine basil, strawberries, balsamic vinegar and sugar  – toss and chill for an hour
3.  Squeeze fresh lemon over cucumbers (or 1 teaspoon of lemon juice if you’d rather)
4.  Mix in with strawberries and basil mixture
5. Toss with salt & pepper
6. Serve immediately
