Back to Basil

Ever since the weather has been warming up in these parts I've reverted back to eating lightly and pretty much often raw but fresh foods only. Since basil plants everywhere have been flourishing, I've also gone back to eating everything with basil. Unlike last year's plant, this year's produces small-ish leaves. But tons of them. So I can't complain.

I've been eating my all-time favourite Caprese salads like they're going out of style. The past week and a bit though, I've been substituting strawberries instead of the tomatoes. A version that I had at Becky's house for the Bitchy Bees' potluck. It was so yummy that I had to make it for myself...a few times!!

Brett isn't a fan of salads as a meal. He thinks they are more of a side dish to something that contains some form of protein and a starch. I've tried the whole slices of roasted chicken as a topping and some healthy seeds. Yeah, that didn't fly. So I've been on the lookout for some yummy salad ideas, as all my ideas have been a complete fail. Anyone have any ideas? Or any super easy peasy, yet yummy in the tummy dessert ideas?? Natalie, I'm looking at you...coughSourCreamApplePieRecipecough...

Ok, I'm off. I think I've got some more strawberries in the fridge that need to be eaten with some bocconcini, basil, and balsamic vinegar...
