I decided to just keep it simple. Just add a little sugar to pull out the juices, and a little mint to make it refreshing on a hot day. Simple, easy, and naturally delicious.
- Fresh strawberries
- ½ - 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1-2 sprigs mint
- Rinse the strawberries under cool water. Trim the tops off and discard. Quarter the strawberries and put them in a bowl.
- Sprinkle sugar on top and toss to evenly distribute.
- Wash the mint thoroughly and pluck the leaves off the stem. Roughly chop the mint and transfer it to the bowl with the strawberries. Toss to distribute evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes or until ready to eat.
