You have to be kidding me Kennett, er nope try it and all shall be revealed…

Stick with me my friends. Follow the recipe. When you serve this up you’ll likely get looks of curiosity and wonder, but then delight once they tuck in. It is an absolute belter. Its an adaptation from an idea my mother-in-law, Mizuyo, gave me from a meal she had enjoyed at her friends house in London. This is my Avocado, strawberry, basil and chili salad.

For a salad to feed 4 you will need;

  • 3 avocados, with stone taken out. Remove the soft flesh from the skins and slice thinly;
  • 1 punnet of strawberries. Cut off the top and cut in half;
  • Half a cup or so of freshly shaved parmesan cheese;
  • Half a cup of ripped Thai basil leaves – or normal basil;
  • 4 finely chopped shallots;
  • 1 finely sliced jalapeño pepper; and
  • 1 packet of prosciutto or other cured ham. Chop this in to strips and fry until crispy and curled up.

This just so easy. Throw all the above in a serving bowl. Phase I of Avocado, strawberry, basil and chili salad is complete. Now all we need is a decent dressing to accompany it;

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil;
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar;
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice;
  • 1-2 tablespoons of sugar;
  • 1 tablespoon salt; and
  • A very good pinch of cracked black pepper.

Stir this up and then pour over the salad in the bowl. Give that a good toss, and then plate her up for eating time! It looks amazing, doesn’t it, with all those colours and textures? Then try eating it. It’s like party poppers going off in your mouth. Sweet, sour, hot, salty, basily – AMAZING! Seriously give this one a go and see the faces before and after. This is a cracking salad. That was my Avocado, strawberry, basil and chili salad – ENJOY!!!
