Light, Easy and Delish Strawberry Salad


After a long trip to the motherland, tons of pelmeni, vodka, and other unhealthy stuff I am back to the blog.

The main thing I do after coming back from long gastro trips is – detox. I put aside alcoholic beverages, meats, fried food and only leave what’s good.

Last night a realized that I will only eat something that contains strawberries until the end of the summer (probably will for a week and then drop :D).

This salad popped in my mind out of random when I smelled fresh strawberries at the farmers market. There was no better meal that day!
