    Steph’s note: Please welcome Candace from Beyoutifully Delicious to the blog again. A couple weeks ago, I featured her PeaNOT Pineapple Slaw, and it’s gotten rave reviews. Candace is all about good food with big flavor, and this recipe will not disappoint. Without further adieu, take it away Candace!

    Last Easter I came up with a fresh strawberry dressing that gave a subtle sweetness to a spring green salad. For the protein to compliment the slaw, I updated it as a marinade with some heat. There’s nothing like salty, sweet AND spicy. Now we’re talking game-changer.

    I love this marinade on mahi-mahi, it’s a flakey fish that has a really clean taste to it. None of that “fishy” business that tends to draw people away from ocean proteins. If seafood is not your thing, this is perfect for chicken too.

    You can easily flavor swap blackberry or apricot for the strawberry as they work well with chili peppers. I would use fresh apricots rather than dried just because I want to keep my sugar in check. It’s very easy for that to get crazy if I’m not intentional about food preparation.

    1. I’m making this with chicken on Saturday!! But I don’t have coconut vinegar, what is the best substitute? I have rice, Apple cider and balsamic vinagers in the pantry. Since I live in Norway it will take a few weeks to get coconut vinegar as I will have to order online, but I can’t wait to make this;)

        1. Will do, thanks! Love your recipes!!? I tag you every now and then when I post pics of your food on my Insta @evdiliotisa ?
