Hasselback Strawberries

I feel like summer is almost here! All the fresh herbs and produce popping up at the store has me all excited. I loooove me some basil and thought this was a fresh twist on a traditional caprese salad with some inspiration from hasselback potatoes.

You’ll need:
Fresh Strawberries
Fresh Basil
Fresh Mozzarella
Balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and black pepper

I wound up not using the blue cheese pictured but I think it would go great as well!

Wash strawberries and basil then pat dry. Slice the strawberry horizontally but dont slice all the way through. Leave the bottom of the strawberry attached, this will keep everything together.

Slice the fresh mozzarella into very thin pieces.

Place the mozzarella in the slits of the strawberry.

Tear tiny pieces of basil off and nussle those in the slits with the mozzarella.
