healthy side dishes

 Serve as a side salad, starter or snack!

  • 4 cups strawberries, quartered (1 pound)
  • 2 Tbl thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw organic sugar 
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, and toss gently to coat. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

Tabouleh traditionally does not contain the vegetables in this recipe, but is usually served with some kind of cucumber dish. My mother throws them in at the start for an amazing dish I can’t resist!
