If this looks familiar, that’s because I was in fact hugely inspired by a Bon Appétit recipe for strawberry cucumber fruit salad with lemon cream. It was featured in their August edition. I came across it and lit up. My mind immediately started the process it’s so attuned to now: deconstructing and reassembling the recipe to make it Candida Diet friendly. Which in this case, was a simple as swapping out the créme fraiche for coconut butter and pistachios for almonds, and skipping the added sugar. It’s plenty sweet all on its own.
“But wait… the first word in this recipe is strawberry. Am I on the right site?” You may be wondering. Make no mistake, it’s me. I now eat (some) fruit again (in small amounts and properly combined). And I have to tell you. It’s gotta be like having a near-death experience. Strawberries have never, ever tasted so good.
