Strawberry Mango Basil Salad


Here’s a light salad for you to try. This strawberry mango basil salad is topped with gorgonzola and pistachio for a healthy sweet and salty treat that will compliment your summer dinners.

It’s a great way to use up a lot of your basil and to add some fruits and herbs to your diet. I topped it with a balsamic vinaigrette to keep things light and the focus on the main ingredients.

Feel free to sub a different cheese for the gorgonzola, though I do love gorgonzola as its deep flavor offsets the sweetness of the fruit in a really nice way. If you were to change out the cheese, I’d pick feta or blue cheese. Both are decent substitutions.
