Strawberry & Cucumber Salad with Minty Coconut Dressing

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.
