I love fruit, and am passionate about strawberries. I love colours with a vengeance, I am an artist – I love design and working on a clean canvas is how I begin with every recipe. First my appetite initiates me. Then, in my mind’s eye, I see it and somehow taste it. Then I lose myself in preparing and creating my dishes. So here I worked with contrasting colours – red and green – and then continued with other additions, to make not only a visionary celebration, but a celebration of the whole senses. Textures, aromas and taste – these really are the top priority !
- around 8 strawberries, cut into quarter slithers
- 1 juicy pear, cut into squares
- a handful of mixed lettuce of your choice, roughly chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 carrot, cut lengthways into about 8 slithers
- ½ cup of fresh basil, roughly cut
- 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
Prepare by washing all the fruit and veg thoroughly. Chop ingredients as suggested above, then place and arrange them in an open salad bowl, and add the grated ginger on top (it looks fabulous that way, and smells heavenly too). Then sprinkle on the seeds and serve. Pour over dressing of your choice – balsamic vinegar with a little maple syrup and oil works well with this. Enjoy your health !
