Fresh strawberries are the best! They’re a great snack just the way they are…but if you want to try a few different ways to sweeten them up a little, here are some ideas…
STRAWBERRIES, WALNUTS, AND HONEY:
- 1 1b. fresh strawberries (without the stems), cut in half or in chunks
- 2/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
- 1-2 Tbsp. honey
- 1/2 cup chopped dates (optional)
Place cut up strawberries in a medium bowl; add the walnuts and toss to mix evenly (add the chopped dates, too, if you want to use them). Then drizzle with honey and toss to coat. Serve in small dessert dishes. If you want to make this a little more fancy, you could top the strawberries in each dessert bowl with a little whipped cream or a dollop of vanilla yogurt, and then drizzle on a little more honey!
STRAWBERRIES AND CINNAMON SUGAR:
For an easy snack, fill a small bowl with strawberries and sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar or chocolate cinnamon sugar. If you don’t have any on hand, click here on Cinnamon Sugar Recipes for directions on how to make them!
STRAWBERRIES WITH HONEY AND BALSAMIC VINEGAR:
Fill a small bowl with strawberries and drizzle with 1 Tbsp. honey; add a dash or two of balsamic vinegar, and toss lightly. The honey and balsamic vinegar may sound like an odd combination, but the vinegar adds a nice little zing!
