Strawberries and cucumbers have such mild flavors, they partner well with each other. Adding a little fresh mint, honey mustard and lime will create wonderful contrasting flavors. Then when topped with a touch of canola oil, these flavors will shine.

Mixed Berry, Cucumber and Mint Salad with Lime Dressing


Directions

1In large bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients.

2Add strawberries, blackberries, cucumber and mint, tossing to coat.

3Arrange lettuce leaves on individual plates.

4Spoon strawberry mixture onto lettuce leaves and serve.

Tips: Strawberries and black pepper work well together. For added flavor, put 1/4 tsp ground black pepper in the dressing. The strawberries and blackberries can be swapped for other fruits – try raspberries and blueberries for variety. To make this a complete meal, add grilled or roasted chicken breast or grilled or steamed shrimp. And for a more savory version of the salad, add 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or whole green onions.
