I loved it! The only adjustments I made were that I used canola oil instead of evoo (thought I had some, but didnt): next time I will use evoo; also. I couldnt find fresh basil, so I used fresh mint. It was quite good! I thought with the strawberries, mint would work, & it did, very well.

This is really good and if you have a perfect avocado, this is a great way to use it that is different from the norm. Its best served plated, similar to the photo as the balsamic will make it look muddy if you mix it all together. Use a good balsamic. I had no mozzarella so i cubed a mild white cheddar and it was just wonderful. Do season with the pepper and salt as that really brings out the best in all the ingredients. I heeded the use of pepper and can say it really made it pop so don´t think pepper and strawberries don´t mix.

Perfect summer salad! You can't go wrong here. Simple but interesting combination of flavours. I prepared the strawberries, mozzarella balls and tomatoes (with oil, salt and pepper) a little ahead of time and refrigerated it. Then added the basil and avocado just before serving. One gentle toss and then the balsamic glaze drizzle. So yummy! Will definitely be making this one all summer.

Delicious!!! I didn’t have any basil but that was the only adjustment made.

I wouldn't change anything. Make sure you salt and pepper generously and use good quality, fresh produce and mozzarella! You can find balsamic glaze in the grocery store so that you don't have to reduce the balsamic yourself. It was a hit at the Memorial Day party!
