This salad is so tasty and moreish. You can have it as an accompaniment with any main course, or just as it is with a dip and rice cakes – or hot pitta bread, or whatever takes your fancy !
1 cup fresh strawberries, roughly chopped
1 avocado, sliced lengthways
3 cups lettuce of your choice, chopped up
¼ cup fresh coriander/cilantro, finely chopped
1 medium red pepper, sliced
¼ cup roasted salted peanuts
radish, sliced (optional)
a handful of fresh basil leaves (optional)
- Assemble the ingredients of your salad once all is washed, chopped, etc, in a large salad plate, or an open plate with a large surface, as per pic.
- Then sprinkle on your nuts, and drizzle on your dressing – or else serve the dressing from a small pouring jug once you have made it.
INGREDIENTS FOR SWEET BALSAMIC DRESSING
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup olive oil
½ tsp sea salt
1½ tsp molasses sugar
1 tsp mustard
Put the above ingredients in a clean jam jar, close lid tightly, and shake until thick. Then open, and adjust the taste to your preference, if you wish.

What is molasses sugar???
Hi Janelle, hope this helps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molasses_Sugar
I served this last night at a pot luck dinner and it was an absolute hit. I did however make a different dressing because some of the guests had to eat fat-free.
It was still a sweet balsamic dressing.
Hi there Marylee, I am delighted that you have tried and shared this recipe at a potluck – and that it was a huge hit ! I very much look forward to your future comments on my blog. Best wishes your way in the meantime.
This salad was so yummy, I will be making it quite often I think. I didn’t have peanuts, so used cashews instead.
That sounds great Sarah, glad you enjoyed it ! 🙂
This salad was sooo good. I made it last night for my family and everyone loved it. Could not find molasses sugar so I used date sugar instead. I will be making this often.
So glad to hear this Lynn. I very much look forward to your future comments on my blog ! 🙂
