I was cutting and dicing strawberry this evening for tomorrow dinner party when my sweet daughter said: “Mom, can I please have some?” I was not about to refuse. Lisa and Theo will eat fruits, but you have to remind them to do so.. and when there are better choices available, you guessed it;-), that’s not fruit that they will eat.
So even though I was dicing those strawberry for my tomorrow’s white chocolate strawberry verrine, I let her have some.
I however “season” them with fresh basil.
You should try! It is very refreshing and it enhances the strawberry flavor.
Ingredients for 4: 4 cups of diced strawberry, 4 Tbsp of sugar, 24 leaves of basil finely chopped or 4 tsp of chopped basil.
In a bowl, mix together the strawberry, the Basil, and the sugar.
Spoon the mixture in little bowls. Add a dollop of whipped cream ( I used bought whipped cream), and sprinkle more basil on top of the cream. Serve with meringues if you desire.
