Strawberry and Stilton Salad

Fresh basil enhances the flavor of this light salad.

2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 Tbsp raspberry vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp water
4 cups mesclun mix
1/4 cup (1 oz) crumbled Stilton cheese (we prefer Colston Bassett Stilton)

In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, basil, vinegar, and sugar; toss well to coat. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.

Pour strawberry mixture into a strainer set over a bowl. Set aside strawberries; pour reserved liquid into a jar. Add oil and water to jar. Cover tightly and shake vigorously.

Arrange greens onto 4 individual salad plates, dividing equally. Top each salad with 1/4 of the reserved strawberries and 1 tablespoon of cheese. Drizzle each salad with 2 teaspoons dressing. Serve with our DLM French baguettes.
