Raw Strawberry Pistachio Tart

This tart comes together and is ready to eat in less than 20 minutes! It's fresh and sweet, slightly tart and nutty. I know this sounds weird but it tastes exactly like a flavor reminiscent of my childhood. Remember when you got to the bottom of your box of Fruit Loops or Trix cereal and there was that fruity-sweet dust that covered the remaining bits? This tart tastes just like that! It's a totally bizarre comparison so I even had my husband try it and he agreed that strangely, it tastes just like that.

Dates, pistachios, oats and sea salt make this simple crust sitting under fresh strawberry jam and juicy sliced strawberries on top.

Raw Strawberry Pistachio Tart
serves 8
2 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup gluten free (or old fashioned) rolled oats
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 lb fresh strawberries, divided
2 tbl raw agave

Combine the dates, pistachios, oats and salt in a food processor and blend until the mixture comes together in a ball.
Press into the bottom of a parchment lined 8" cake or tart pan.
Roughly chop 1/2 of the strawberries and pulse with the agave in the food processor into a chunky spread. Spread the strawberry jam on top of the crust, draining off some of the liquid so it's not so wet.
Top the tart with the remaining strawberries, thinly sliced. Cut into wedges and serve.
