Tasty Seasonal Vegetarian crunchy & creamy salad!

Tasty Seasonal Vegetarian crunchy & creamy salad!

I was home alone & needed a tasty easy Seasonal salad for myself. I looked what I had in the fridge & pantry & made this! It is the end of strawberry season over here in Belgium, so I used strawberries in my salad. I ate this glorious salad as a nice crunchy & creamy breakfast!

This salad was just what I needed! 🙂 How to make it? Read on!



Recipe: For 1 person:


fresh salad leaves, cleaned, torn, just enough for 1 person

3 tablespoons cooked corn

a few drizzles of a fruity extra virgin olive oil

herbed sea salt, a few dashes onto the mozzarella & onto the salad

balsamic vinegar crème: squeezed into a circle

black pepper: 8 grins on mozzarella & onto the salad

1 fat spring onion, cleaned, white & green parts kept, cut up finely

half a ball of fresh Buffalo mozzarella, cut into thinner slices

3 – 4 strawberries, cleaned, hulled & each cut up into 2 or 4


1. Take a large clean white plate & place your torn salad leaves all over it, like picture above. Scatter your cooked corn pieces in the middle & on the sides too. Place your fresh Buffalo mozzarella slices into the middle, in a circle.  Arrange your strawberry halves, like in the picture. Season your mozzarella with some dashes of herbed sea salt. Scatter your spring onion pieces all over your plate, so that it looks nice! Drizzle some of that fruity extra virgin olive oil over your salad, but not on the mozzarella & not on the strawberries. Now, grind some finely milled black pepper all over your salad & over the mozzarella too! Finally, drizzle some of the balsamic vinegar crème, all over your salad, in a circle, like picture above & enjoy instantly! I devoured it in minutes,….Enjoy! 🙂

    I passed the link for your blog on to my daughter and her best friend. I don’t know if they are following, but I do know that my daughter has been inspired by your healthy smoothies and she’s been experimenting with your recipes.

  19. afracooking says:

    My darling, I have been away for to long again – missed too many fabulous recipe! This one looks AMAZING – the sauce on the straberries is just stunning!

  20. Sophie– looks delish!! What is balsamic vinegar creme? Is it different than balsamic vinegar?

    • Sophie33 says:

      Yes, it is! 🙂 Balsamic crème is a syrupy reduction of Balsamic vinegar and grape must, the same juice of the Trebbiano grape used in the production of balsamic vinegar.

  21. Make Something Mondays says:

    I’m a big fan of spinach and strawberry salads so you know I am going to love this one!

  22. Carolyn Jung says:

    For pulling that out of thin air, that’s one mighty fine looking salad. It just goes to show that with a little ingenuity, we have the makings of perfectly wonderful meals right under our noses.
