Pass the Pint: Four Ways to Enjoy Strawberries

Those perfectly ripe Summer strawberries can be irresistible, and there's no reason you shouldn't heed their fragrant call. The fruit is a healthy powerhouse for many reasons: strawberries are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants for disease-fighting properties and heart-protecting properties.

Of course, there are many ways to eat strawberries besides by the handful or atop your morning granola or afternoon fro-yo fix. Don't know what to do with all your farmers market strawberries? Here are five creative ways to incorporate strawberries into your meals.

  • Balsamic vinegar snack: If you're looking for a healthy snack or dessert that's not too sweet, try tossing a pint of strawberries with a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. The acidic addition pairs well with the sweetness of your Summer strawberries, and the versatile dish works well as an ice cream topping or by itself.
  • Sliced in salads: Toss a handful of strawberry slices in your next salad for a subtly sweet kick. Here's a spinach strawberry salad recipe to try.
  • Strawberry mojito: Is it happy hour yet? Use a few slices of strawberries to sweeten your favorite cocktail, without the need for all that added sugar. We like this strawberry mojito recipe for a refreshing way to beat the heat.
  • Strawberry water: For a drink that won't possibly induce a hangover, try a rehydrating strawberry-coconut water concoction using this recipe for strawberry water.
