Strawberry Mint Salad WOW

I am featuring this recipe because it is that good!
This recipe is by "The Amorous Cook "

Strawberry Mint Salad

This delicious italian dessert is great alone or on top of vanilla icecream. It's a quick, fresh, healthy dessert that I promise you, & everyone else you share it with, will love! This dessert is made with an italian sweet anise liqueur called Sambuca. This strawberry salad only calls for a shot and a half of the Sambuca to help carmelize the strawberries. It gives the strawberries a sweet anise flavor along with the sugar.

2 cups of strawberries thinly sliced
1 handful of mint leaves chopped..(chop leaves in thin slices for a nice presentation)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 1/2 shots of Romana Sambuca

Mix all these ingredients in a bowl. Let it chill and marinate in the fridge for a half an hour. Then serve cold.

*** Note from me... This recipe the way it is is awesome but since this blog is for power foods, I made this recipe and substitued the sugar with teaspoon of Truvia (sugar substitute) and the liquor with fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice worked out wonderfully! 

Don't forget that strawberries are also a power food high in antioxidants they also are a natural teeth whitening food!  So make up a batch and please let us know what you think!!!
Thank you Maria for sharing this great recipes with us!
