5 Amazing Ways to Eat Strawberries All Summer!

Juicy, fragrant, deliciously sweet… left to its own devices, the strawberry is full of tasty surprises and packs a sweet punch in all kinds of different dishes, from savoury to sweet to salads. Here are five.


Avocado and strawberry pasta salad

Directions:

In a big bowl, combine sliced strawberries, sliced avocados and your choice of bite-size pasta. Flavour with an olive oil, lemon, Dijon mustard and shallot (finely minced) vinaigrette. Mix then garnish with chopped fresh herbs like basil or mint. You can also add a handful of fresh arugula or baby spinach.

Handy Tips:

Pour two-thirds of the dressing on the pasta while it’s still warm, then add the rest the moment you serve it. The hot pasta will better absorb the liquid and the salad will be bursting with flavour!


Strawberry fruit rollups

Directions:

In a blender, purée strawberries with a touch of honey. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the liquid onto it. Dehydrate the mixture in the oven on low heat from 2 to 4 hours, or until the roll easily peels off the parchment paper. Let it cool, then cut into strips with scissors.

Handy Tips:

The thickness of the roll is crucial to the success of this snack. If it’s too thick, it’ll take too long to dry and if it’s too thin, it’ll become crunchy. Aim for about 3 mm of thickness.


Strawberry iced tea

Directions:

Steep green, black or floral herbal tea in hot water for about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the tea bags or leaves, and let the water cool completely. In a blender or using a mixer, blend strawberries into a purée and sweeten with a touch of honey (to taste). Mix the strawberry purée and chilled tea, then add a bit of lemon or lime juice. Garnish with a few mint leaves.

Handy Tips:

To avoid diluting the taste of the iced tea, serve it with frozen slices of strawberries rather than ice cubes. Just fill an ice cube tray with steeped tea and add a few strawberry slices.


Strawberry, pineapple and jalapeno salsa

Directions:

Cut the strawberries and pineapple into tiny pieces. Mince a jalapeno and red onion. Add freshly chopped herbs to taste – basil, mint, cilantro… Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a bit of olive oil, lime juice and lime zest, and a bit of salt. Perfect with corn chips, as a garnish for tacos or even on chicken breasts or grilled salmon!

Handy Tips:

For maximum flavour, prepare the salsa about an hour before serving. Avoid preparing in advance or risk that it’ll become soggy and flavourless.


Overnight oats with chia and strawberries

Directions:

In a resealable container, mix steel cut oats with almond milk or another milk of your choice. Use twice the amount of liquid as there are oats. Add a teaspoon of chia and lightly sweeten with sugar, honey or maple syrup. Flavour with vanilla extract, cinnamon, cardamom or nutmeg. Stir, then add sliced strawberries before closing the lid and leaving overnight. The next day, add coconut flakes and pieces of fresh fruit, and voila!

Handy Tips:

Use steel cut oats, not quick oats or minute oats, or the mixture will become soggy overnight.
