6 Slap-Yo-Mama Strawberry Recipes

It’s strawberry season! They are my favorite fruit of all and now is the time to get the freshest, juiciest, sweetest berries for several of my treasured recipes. A few facts about strawberries you might not know…

  1. Don’t rinse strawberries before you are ready to eat them. They will spoil quicker.
  2. May 21-27 is Strawberry Week in Delaware. Who knew?
  3. There’s an average of 200 seeds on a strawberry.

Here is a recipe roundup for you to enjoy:

Strawberry Pretzel Salad by Natasha’s Kitchen

It's Strawberry Season

My sister makes this dessert  salad for almost every gathering in our family. It is a favorite and requested for most meals together.



Strawberry Bacon Blue-cheese Salad

We southerners put bacon on everything. Yes, it is delicious with strawberries. And, if like me, you aren’t particularly fond of blue-cheese, you can substitute feta. Delicious.

    Great strawberry round up Kim! Have you ever had the Baby Bleu salad from Homewood Gourmet? It’s similar to the one you posted and sooooo good! I love bleu cheese with anything, and it’s great with a sweet element like strawberries-

    I just got home from Olive Garden with an almost-full to go box and that feeling of “I’ll never eat again.” And then I read the Strawberry Bacon Blue Cheese Salad recipe and my mouth is watering. I’ll definitely make this. Also, good to know the tip about not rinsing the strawberries too soon!
