Strawberries are good for much more than a sweet snack and fantastic jam. Here are seven new ways to enjoy them
Layer plain or vanilla yogurt with granola and strawberries for a yummy breakfast parfait. Or add them to muffins, waffles and pancakes.
Fresh and fruity salad
Throw a handful of strawberries and almonds on leafy greens, and top with a fruity dressing. Or substitute strawberries for tomatoes in a Caprese salad made with fresh mozzarella and basil. (To intensify the flavour of strawberries, add ground black pepper.)
To make a strawberry salsa, dice an onion, a bell pepper and a cucumber; mix with cilantro and a little rice wine vinegar. Cover and chill. Add diced strawberries just before serving. Enjoy over beef or salmon.
Place spinach, chopped strawberries, sliced cooked chicken and mozzarella between two slices of whole-grain bread. Heat in a lightly oiled panini press or skillet.
