Strawberries Add Sweetness To A Savory Salad
Strawberries are usually reserved for desserts and snacks. But adding them to a savory pasta dish gives it a delicious and unexpected tang.
Strawberry season is just getting under way, which means two things: spring is officially here and so is strawberry dessert season. But cakes, muffins, cookies and jams aren't the only way to use the red fruit. Strawberries are often a nice sweet complement to an otherwise savory dinner dish. And that's just what Julie from Mommie Cooks did. Not only did she use the red berries to brighten up an already delicious Champagne vinaigrette, she went one step further by adding them to a shrimp salad. The tart fruit added the perfect amount of sweet tang to an already wonderful dish. It brightened up the whole salad, making it the perfect choice when you're in a rush on a warm spring or summer night.
