Now summer time is officially here, I’m celebrating by making this delicious strawberry and goats cheese salad.
I love the flavours and textures in this salad. Firstly strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. This is such a unique flavouring but trust me it works, this tangy combo pairs beautifully with the creamy goats cheese and the sticky honey mixed seeds, to add that little crunch.
