  1. Place almonds in a small, dry skillet and set pan over medium heat. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, until almonds are golden brown, shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the preserves, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard. Add the cucumber, strawberries, mint and toasted almonds and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve inside lettuce leaves or over chopped lettuce.

I did this recipe for a spring pot luck and it was delicious. I made some extra dressing for people to use on the bed of chopped lettuce.

I liked the idea, but the reality was underwhelming.

Crisp, fresh and fun salad that I will be serving during my next pool party!

Loved it. A great combination of flavors. Very easy to make, healthy and refreshing. It's hard to imagine a more summery dish than a strawberry, cucumber, mint salad. Perfect for a picnic or lun...
