Recipe // strawberry mozzarella balsamic salad

February 21, 2013

I am craving summer with all this cold weather, but for now, I am going to just take advantage of some of the strawberries I am starting to see at the market!  I love unexpected salads with amazing ingredients that blend well together!  The combination of strawberries, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic vinaigrette is amazing, and it makes for the perfect light lunch or an addition to your dinner!
{Strawberry Mozzarella Balsamic Salad}
Mixed greens (spinach or romaine also works well!)
Sliced Fresh Strawberries
Fresh Mozzarella cut into cubes
Chopped Pecans
Fresh Basil chopped
Simple Balsamic Dressing (makes 3/4 cup)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
1 teaspoons agave nectar
1/4 sea salt
1/4 fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup olive oil

Whisk together all of the ingredients except for the olive oil.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil.

Arrange the salad with the greens first, then sliced strawberries, mozzarella, chopped pecans, then top with fresh basil and drizzle with balsamic dressing and serve.
