5 Savoury Ways to Enjoy Strawberries this Season

5 Savoury Ways to Enjoy Strawberries this Season

It's finally that time of the year! Strawberry season is in full swing with our favorite berries finding their way from local farms to our kitchen tables. While we would love nothing more than to enjoy strawberries all year long, their limited availability somehow makes them all the more special. Whether it’s freshly churned strawberry ice cream or decadent strawberry cheesecake, we most often associate strawberries with desserts. The winter berries, however, can be a delight in savory dishes - adding a dose of fresh flavor to salads, sides, and mains.

Here are 5 savoury ways to begin experimenting with strawberries in the kitchen:

1. Strawberry Ricotta Bites

Strawberries are wonderful at complementing soft cheeses like ricotta, making our strawberry ricotta bites the perfect light snack for your upcoming Christmas party. To assemble, top thin crackers with a spread of ricotta, basil leaves, and a spoonful of chopped strawberries. Sprinkle them with finely-chopped almonds for extra texture and a bonus nutty flavor. Drizzle balsamic vinegar on top and you’ve got a truly refreshing and delectable seasonal starter!

2.Baked Avocado with Strawberry Salsa

Strawberries are fantastic at hero-ing fruits and vegetables with a creamy texture like avocados. Create the strawberry salsa by mixing basil leaves, green onions, strawberries, goat cheese, and balsamic vinegar. Slice the avocados in half and bake it for about 8 minutes. Fill up the cavity of the avocados with the salsa and sprinkle with olive oil. A refreshingly healthy dish that incorporates two fruit favorites!

3. Sweet and Savoury Strawberry Bruschetta

Bruschetta never tasted (or looked) this good. For the topping - Slice up some fresh strawberries, mix in honey, minced mint leaves, lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper and a generous amount of goat cheese. Pile this onto a toasted baguette bites fresh out of the oven and enjoy!

4.Strawberry Kale Salad

Strawberries add a wonderful freshness to salads, especially when they are complementing the subtle bitterness of kale leaves. Add in crumbled feta, walnuts and strawberry-infused balsamic for a deliciously light winter salad!

5.Spicy Strawberry Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a traditional Spanish cold soup made of blended vegetables and spices. While it is traditionally made using tomatoes, adding in fresh strawberries to the mix makes for a sweet and spicy blend, perfect for a hot day! Balance the sweetness of strawberries and tomatoes is with a hint of heat courtesy of crushed green chilies and black pepper.
