It’s getting hot outside, especially in South Florida! You may already be craving cooling foods like salads and fresh fruit. Sweet strawberries and cooling cucumbers along with this minty fresh coconut milk dressing are sure to satisfy a sweet craving and cool you down all at once. Refreshing! I made the dressing with regular coconut milk but feel free to use light coconut milk.
4 cups organic strawberries, washed and cubed
4 cups cucumbers, washed, peeled, and cubed
1 cup coconut milk
2 T. fresh mint leaves, washed and finely chopped
1 T. white chia seeds
½ tsp. organic grade B maple syrup
1. Whisk together dressing ingredients, set aside. Adjust seasoning to taste, if needed.
2. Wash and chop strawberries and cucumbers. Place in serving bowl.
3. Pour dressing over salad and toss to evenly distribute dressing.
4. Chill 30 minutes before serving.
Yield: 8 servings
