Strawberry Icecream

Strawberry Salad With Basil & Greek Yoghurt
Tossed with finely sliced basil, extra virgin olive oil, lime juice and honey, this glistening strawberry salad is a unique and quirky mix that somehow works very well together.

Macerated Strawberries
Macerated strawberries, or strawberries soaked in a liquid (think cointreau or grand marnier) and sugar, are perfect with icecream or a fresh side for so many desserts. Alternatively, enjoy them with a generous dollop of mascarpone.
