Savory-Sweet Strawberry Salad

This is a lovely dessert that was made for us by fine chef and sommelier Eric Pasquet in Paris.  

Ingredients:

1 lb Organic Strawberries

1 to 2 Tbs Honey

Olive oil infused with lemon (oil pressed with lemon at the same time) If not lemony enough, or if only plain olive oil is available, add a couple squeezes of lemon (juice of 1/8 lemon) and a hint of lemon zest (1/8 tsp)

1/4 tsp fresh and coarsely ground Peppercorns. *best is a pepper coming from South India or Indonesia roughly grind or pestled.

1/4 cup Fresh mint, sliced into thin strips. Regular “Morocco” mint, not spearmint. If the leaves are large, avoid the center spine.

1 Tbs Fine quality balsamic vinegar. We prefer a fig vinegar.

This is one that really sings when you have great ingredients. Fine local honey, ripe organic strawberries, black pepper that is not too sharp but very flavorful, and a fine aged balsamic will make a difference in the flavor.

Cut strawberries in half or in quarters if larger berries. Mix throughly with a Tablespoonful or two of honey, depending on how sweet the strawberries are, and let the berries sit for a few minutes until they become juicy. Add a dash of olive oil infused with lemon  Sprinkle with black pepper, Slice mint into thin strips and add to the mixture. At the last moment, add a dash of balsamic vinegar. Quantities are approximate, adjust to taste. Mix and serve.  Delicious!
