What! How could you have too many strawberries?
Oh. You took the kids strawberry picking this weekend. Yes, I understand. They do grab berries at alarming rates, don’t they…
And now you’ve had your fill of strawberry shortcake, strawberry smoothies, strawberries and cream, strawberries on your corn flakes. What else could you possibly do with a strawberry?
How about tossing some in your salad? When combined with a mix of velvety soft buttercrunch and crispy firm spinach leaves from the garden — they make for the most delectable lunch.
Looks good, doesn’t it? It is. The secret to this salad’s appeal is the striking contrast between fresh tangy berry and sweet mild goat cheese. It’s melt in your mouth good. Check my recipe section for details!
First time I realized strawberries made a wonderful addition to salads was dinner at my cousin Nancy’s home. She added nuts along with a variety of fresh ingredients, but for me, the strawberries were the main attraction.
Of course, the joy of picking them ourselves added to the pleasure! This little guy just looks like he’s having fun, doesn’t he?
He was, we were… Picking your own fruits and veggies is great fun for the entire family. To find a u-pick farm near you–check this great website.
Then you too, may find yourself in the midst of a sea of berries. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
