What are you whipping up for Valentine’s Day?! I’m having a little GALentine’s Day with girlfriends in Palm Springs! We’re celebrating a 30th birthday and a bachelorette! Double dose of amazingness!!
Strawberries are the perfect little snack around Valentine’s Day especially when you’re trying to eat light poolside. They’re red, sweet, and even look like hearts- I think this calls for a recipe. I typically like to do a couple apps/sides for these events and I was thinking of making basil, strawberry, feta skewers similar to these ones. But I wanted to show off those cute little berry hearts, so why not just lay them directly on a bed of basil?
And what better than to balance all of those chocolates and sweets with a refreshing salad? Strawberry salads are my favorite…so, let’s get to work!
What You Need:
* Feta Cheese
What To Do:
1. Rinse the strawberries.
2. Slice them length wise towards the base (green top).
3. Cut little “V”s at the base of the berry to create the heart shape.
4. Rinse the basil.
5. Make a bed of basil on a tray and place your heart berries over the top.
6. Top with feta crumbles and lightly drizzle with vinaigrette.
It’s as pretty as it is delicious – make it for friends and family to spread the love… I know what I’m doing, just sayin’…
