If you haven’t tried roasted strawberries then you’re missing out, these babies are so sweet and delicious and can be eaten with sweet or savoury dishes. Try roasted strawberries with salad, ricotta bruschetta or dolloped on top of a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I love Caprese salad, it’s so simple and with good quality, fresh ingredients it tastes incredible. I decided to give the classic Italian salad a sweet twist with strawberries and peaches and it’s SO damn delicious. I can tell I’ll be eating this all summer long, it’s so fresh and light which is a must on hot summer’s days and it’s bursting with wonderful summer flavours.


The roasted strawberries caramelise slightly in the oven and go perfectly with the soft, mellow mozzarella cheese and tangy balsamic glaze. The peaches give a wonderful sweetness to the salad and the toasted pine nuts provide texture and nuttiness.

This summery caprese salad only takes 10-20 minutes to make, it’s that simple. Cut the tops off the strawberries and cut them in half, drizzle in a little oil and toss into a lined baking tray. Roast the strawberries for 10 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile finely slice the peaches and mozzarella, chop up some mint leaves and toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan under a medium heat for a couple seconds until golden.

All that’s left to do is assemble the salad. I like to add a small handful of arugula/rocket to each plate then place alternate slices of peach and mozzarella on the plate followed by the juicy strawberries. Finish with a sprinkling of chopped mint, pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic glaze.

Enjoy for a light lunch on a hot summer’s day!

    I’ve never roasted strawberries – clearly I must! What a delightfully colorful salad – perfect for a hot summer day or even just because.
