Strawberry Salad

18 Sep

Dave and I recently had our 1st anniversary (August 29), and we went to Raffi’s in Naperville to celebrate, which is the same restaurant where we had our rehearsal dinner. Raffi’s specializes in Mediterranean food and is quite tasty. If you are ever in Naperville, Illinois, go check it out. One of the specials they had on our anniversary was a strawberry salad featuring fresh mozzerella, basil, and mint–kind of like a caprese salad with strawberries instead of tomatoes. We enjoyed this so much that I decided to recreate it last weekend at our house. I think it turned out pretty comparable to the original, and maybe even a little better.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. On a small plate, assemble equal parts quartered strawberries and sliced fresh mozzarella cheese. I used about 6 strawberries and 4-6 small balls of fresh mozzarella.
  2. Slice some fresh mint and basil leaves horizontally so the result is thin strips. Sprinkle herbs over the top of the strawberries and mozzarella.
  3. Spoon balsamic vinaigrette over the top of the salad. That’s it! Super easy, fresh, and delicious.

…and just for fun, a picture of Dave and I from our rehearsal dinner at Raffi’s.
