S like… Strawberry

S like spring, S like sun and S like Strawberries! Let me share with you my mum’s strawberry salad recipe with orange flower water, one of the main Tunisian ingredient.

Whenever I ask my mother to give me a recipe, she kindly indicates all the ingredients, but without the dosage…. a little bit of these, then of that, then add this and here you go 🙂  So I tried my best to replicate it but don’t worry this one is easy, you will have no problem adding more of this or of that.


  • 250g-350g of strawberries, Gariguette are my preferred one but any other would also work
  • 10 tbsp of orange flower water
  • 4 tbsp of water
  • 1 (or 2) brown sugar
  • 1/4 squeezed yellow lemon (if green lime , half)
  • 5 leaves of mint


  1. wash the strawberries, dry them delicately and cut off their ends. Then slice the strawberries in little squares and put them in a bowl
  2. in a separate, start adding the orange flower and the water. As my mother told me, the water is dilute a little bit the concentre of orange flower water, but the orange flower has to remain predominant
  3. then add step by step the brown sugar, the squeezed lemon or lime. Always taste whenever adding an ingredient
  4. cut the mint leaves into small pieces and add them to the previous
  5. allow to sit in container for at least 10 min to let all the perfumes blossom

Then place the container in the fridge a little bit and then ENJOY IT !!!
