My All-Time Favorite Strawberry Recipes

June 15, 2015

Strawberry season is in full swing and I am making the most of it from baking my favorite treats, preparing preserves and eating them fresh from the basket.  It was hard to narrow down my favorite uses for these versatile sun kissed berries but I am pretty happy with the selection.  Have your tried any of these strawberry recipes? If so, what did you think? Let me know in the comment section below.

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake
Recipe from My Greek Kitchen

No bake strawberry shortcake is as easy as whipping cream - literally, that's all the work you have to do for this recipe.  Whipped cream is mixed with vanilla pudding mix and layered with slices of store bought sponge cake and fresh strawberries.  It is simple, easy and delicious.

Strawberry and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

Strawberries are wonderful in savory recipes as well as sweet.  Fresh strawberries, spinach and goat cheese come together beautifully in this simple salad.  I love the idea of incorporating strawberry jam in the dressing because it adds sweetness and intensifies that strawberry flavor.    If you want to turn this salad into a main course, a grilled piece of chicken would be lovely.  I think you will be impressed by how well these flavors marry together.

Roasted strawberry sundaes are an easy way to spruce up your typical bowl of ice cream.  Fresh summer strawberries are roasted with balsamic vinegar and honey to create a dynamic and intensely flavored sauce.  The strawberry balsamic jam is drizzled over ice cream to provide a perfectly balanced dessert.  Feel free to add other ingredients like chocolate chips or toasted almonds.
