Clean Eating Recipe of the Week- Strawberry & Mozzarella Salad


It's strawberry season here in CA so I thought I'd show them off in a clean, healthy way. When it starts to warm up salad is my number one favorite food. Light, crispy and delicious!

Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 heart of romaine cut into bite-size pieces, about 3 cups loosely packed
1- 8 oz. container of strawberries, hulled and sliced
3 oz. part-skim mozzarella cheese, diced (about 3/4 cup)
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into ribbons

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Place lettuce in a large bowl and toss with half of the dressing. Place lettuce on 4 salad plates.

2. Toss strawberries with remaining dressing and place 1/4 of berries on top of each mound of lettuce. Top each with cheese and then sprinkle with basil.

3. Eat up!

I LOVE strawberries. Yesterday I bought my first batch from the farmer's market (local and organic) and I couldn't believe the taste difference compared to what I used to buy at Whole Foods. Knowing that they were pretty much just picked before I bought them made my heart soar.

Cheers,
Kristen
