  • 8 medium fresh strawberries halved, then each half cut into thirds
  • half of a small red onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
To finish:
  • 3 cups cooked jasmine rice
  • sesame seeds I use black and white for garnish, if desired
  • fresh cilantro basil and/or mint leaves, for garnish, if desired
  • cashew halves and pieces for garnish, if desired
For the meatballs and sauce:
  1. Prepare the Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Meatballs and sauce as directed in this recipe.

For the strawberry cucumber salad:
  1. Combine the lime juice, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce and salt in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well. Set aside.
  2. Combine the cucumbers, red onion and strawberries in a medium-size bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the top and toss gently to coat. Set aside.
