A sweet and tangy fruit salad side dish. In-season strawberries get paired with fresh basil and a very simple and minimal balsamic vinaigrette. Think an elevated fruit salad.


  • 2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 pound strawberries, cut into ½-inch chunks (about 3 ½ cups)
  • 4 large basil leaves, chiffonade


  • In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, maple syrup, pepper and a pinch of salt.
  • Add strawberries and toss to coat.
  • Add basil and toss gently just to combine.


This salad is best served soon after making. We do not recommend making it ahead of time. Stored for more than a day in the fridge, this salad with weep and the strawberries will become soft and mushy.
