2 cups sliced strawberries

1 cup mini mozzarella balls

1 loose-packed cup mint and basil leaves

In a small jar, shake together the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, ginger, garlic, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Assemble the fruit, cheese and herbs on a platter. Drizzle the dressing, gently toss and serve!
