Strawberry Carpaccio

Strawberries are always a big hit in summer. They never last long in our house, I even have several verities growing in my garden. I'm always excited to try new recipes that I can do with strawberries.  When I saw this recipe the ingredients had me slightly shocked, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon. Though when I tired this recipe, they all complement the strawberry and brings out the iconic strawberry flavour.

Les Ingredients 
Table spoon of icing sugar
Lemon - juiced
Drizzle of olive oil
Drizzle of balsamic vinegar
Few leaves of basil


Slice the strawberries, keep them together as this makes it makes it easier to do the presentation. Place the strawberries on the plate.

To make the dressing, in a small bowl add together the icing sugar and the lemon juice, then add in the olive oil, but make sure you keep mixing well, to make sure that it is all mixed well.

Add the few leaves of basil and then dribble the dressing over the strawberries and add the balsamic, and serve immediately.

You can finish off the dish with ice cream or cream to make it slightly more indulgent.

This is pretty easy to make and the with the sun trying to come out, and us brits, trying to make the most of our summer, this recipe is a sure way to make the most of summer and enjoy locally grown strawberries.

Bon Appétit
