Doesn't that name of this salad sound appetizing?
It look and tastes pretty good too.
I am really excited to share this one with you because it is just so vibrant and fresh.
Strawberry, balsamic salad with coconut bacon
1/2 cup coconut chunks
2 drops liquid smoke
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons coconut syrup
3 big handfuls of rocket
1 punnet strawberries
1/4 red onion
10 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup slivered almonds
fresh, oregano, mint, thyme
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon coconut syrup or other liquid sweetener such as agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Preheat your over to 160 degrees.
Place your coconut ingredients in a small bowl and coat well. Place on a pan with some grease proof paper and bake for about 10 minutes or until browning (coconut will crisp up when cooled)
In a jar with a lid place all the ingredients for the dressing and shake well.
Cut your veggies and tear in the herbs into a big salad bowl.
In a dry pan place the chopped almonds and fry on a low heat until becoming brown.
Combine coconut, almonds and salad. Drizzle over dressing and serve immediately!
I would never have thought that oregano and strawberries would be such a good combination but they really are a perfect match. So make sure you add a lot of it!
I think I may be overdosing on strawberries at the moment. I am literally eating a punnet a day.
Could that be a bad thing?
