Ingredients

For the salad

  • 4 mini cucumbers
  • 340 g small strawberries
  • 300 g Sungold cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp Serrano pepper (I replaced with some Tabasco)
  • 1 small fresh mint bouquet (I used 10 g)
  • 1 small tarragon bouquet (I used 10 g)
  • 40 g fresh goat cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the vinaigrette

  • 3 limes (green lemons) (circa 75 ml)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 60 ml grape seed oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

For the vinaigrette

  • Whisk the lime juice and its zests with the honey. Gradually add in the oils, always whisking. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

For the salad

  • Cut the cucumbers into thin slices.
  • Clean up the strawberries. Keep the smaller ones integer and cut the larger ones (in 2 or 4 depending on size).
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Chop the tarragon and the mint leaves. Save the equivalent of one tea spoon for serving.
  • In a bowl, combine the cucumbers, the strawberries and the tomatoes. Pour half of the vinaigrette, add the herbs and toss gently so the fruits are well coated.
  • When serving, add the cheese pieces and adjust the vinaigrette seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. For spice lovers, add chili or Tabasco [being sensitive to chili I keep it aside and let people to adjust to their taste].
