Tags: recipes, salad, Summer garden, vegetables

Muddled strawberries add a subtle sweetness and pop of color to this twist on a classic margarita. Fresh basil, lime juice, and agave round it all out for a refreshing, slightly sweet summer drink. Pair it with a salad of crispy Olive Oil Zucchini and Sweet Corn Relish and you’ve got your summer garden in perfect savory form.
