5 Delicious Strawberry Recipes to Celebrate Spring The Right Way

Strawberry picking season is upon us, and we can't wait to get a taste of this delicious fruit. Luckily, strawberries can make friends with just about any food, from balsamic vinegar to white chocolate. If your taste buds want in on the action, these 5 strawberry recipes are the perfect way to ring in spring.

1. Spinach & Strawberry Salad

Freeze dried sliced or whole strawberries and spinach play starring roles. While their performance is outstanding, they are supported by feta cheese, pecans, and red onion helps take the dish to a whole new level. Dress it up in a delicious balsamic vinaigrette!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups baby spinach, rinsed

1 cup freeze dried sliced strawberries

1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp honey

Salt and pepper, for seasoning

  2. In a small saucepan, pour the balsamic vinegar and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3-4 minutes or until it's reduced by half.
  3. Then, transfer to a bowl and add the olive oil, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and honey. Mix until they are evenly combined. You may need to add a little water.
  4. In a salad, bowl, toss the hydrated strawberries, spinach, strawberries, pecans, feta, and the vinaigrette. Mix until all ingredients are coated with the vinegar sauce.

3. Strawberry Meringue Puffs
