Strawberry Caprese Salad - Perfect Party Food

A stunning salad to serve at your next soiree, this Strawberry Caprese Salad has a few of my favourite ingredients, walnuts, bocconcini and strawberries. The simplest of fresh foods make the most delicious meals especially when you source excellent produce. Look for ripe red strawberries and high-quality bocconcini to really make this salad special.

This recipe is taken from the charming cook book 'The Forest Feast', a collection of recipes from the website of the same name, authored by Erin Gleeson. Erin 'a New York photographer who moved to the woods', lives in a cabin nestled in Northern California. Inspired by local ingredients, she creates simple, beautiful, healthy recipes anyone can make. Her writing backdrop is so beautiful, it's no surprise Erin is met with boundless inspiration surrounded by evergreen trees reaching high above her cosy retreat.

Her beautiful book features recipes inspired by her blog and most comprise of only a few ingredients requiring little preparation. My favourite recipes in her repertoire are her simple yet creative salads and her cute and chic snacks, like lavender honey and goat's cheese stuffed dates. The Forest Feast is the perfect companion for the stylish foodie.
