7 Ways to Serve Strawberries

by Berkeley Wellness  

Strawberries are a favorite fruit for jams and shortcake. But you can enjoy them in so many more ways. Here are seven serving suggestions for strawberries.

1. Layer fresh strawberries and creamy yogurt or ricotta in a glass for a delightful parfait.

2. Toss sliced strawberries with fresh spinach, sliced almonds and crumbled feta or goat cheese for a sweet and tart salad. Dress the salad with champagne vinegar and olive oil.

3. For a summer dinner salad, chop a couple of cooked chicken breasts and toss with diced strawberries, a minced green onion, a bit of basil, and toasted almonds.

4. Create a strawberry salsa. Mix chopped strawberries with chopped avocado (or mango), red onion, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, and lime juice. Serve with tortilla chips or over grilled fish, chicken, or pork.

5. Blend with ice, yogurt, and honey for a quick smoothie. Toss in a banana or some mango to liven it up.

6. Want a quick summer dessert? Drizzle sliced strawberries with a little balsamic vinegar. Serve over vanilla ice cream and garnish with shaved chocolate.

7. Slice strawberries, toss with a teaspoon of sugar and let the mixture sit for a half-hour, until it becomes syrupy. Serve over pancakes for a breakfast treat.
