I love salads all year round, no matter what the weather is like, and this is one of my favourites. The strawberries give the salad a sweet lovely taste among the healthy greens combined with the crunchy texture from the lightly toasted nuts. The touch of basil completes it perfectly!

Ingredients:
½ cup/70 g macadamia nuts
1 punnet (250g/about 1.5 – 2 cups) of fresh strawberries
1 large handful of spinach
1 large handful of arugula (rocket) leaves
½ red onion, sliced
1 handful of fresh basil leaves

Dressing:
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (can use caramelized if you want a sweeter salad)
2 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

1.)    Lightly toast macadamia nuts.

2.)    Wash and chop strawberries into quarters and slice onion.

3.)    Add all the salad ingredients into a bowl.

4.)    Combine dressing ingredients – dress as you like (you may want more or less dressing).

Substitutions:
Macadamia – pine nuts, cashews
Strawberries – tomato, watermelon, raspberries
Spinach & Arugula(rocket) – kale, lettuce
Basil – mint, parsley
