Instructions
 

  • Cut the tops off of the strawberries and slice them up. Place in a medium non-metal bowl.

  • Pick the leaves off of the mint and basil sprigs. Sprinkle the herbs onto the salads, distributing evenly. If the leaves are large, tear them up a bit.
  • Stir the strawberries again, then distribute the mixture evenly over the four salads. This is your dressing, too, so make sure to use all of the liquid. Toss gently if desired, or leave it on top since it looks pretty.
