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.)
Add chopped strawberries and nuts to cooked quinoa for a tasty breakfast; add a touch of maple syrup if you like.
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.
