Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip

The weather is warming up nicely, and when it’s warm outside, I tend to eat more fruit because it’s so refreshing. And when you serve fruit with a dressing or dip, it makes a great warm-weather snack or dessert! This Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip is big on strawberry flavor and really good served with strawberries or a mix of fresh fruit chunks—pineapples, sliced bananas, apple wedges…whatever fruit you like!

Corn and Blueberry Salad

Sometimes you come across a recipe that sounds so different, you just have to try it!

The sweetness of the corn complements the blueberries…and the red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro give this salad a nice savory punch. And I have to mention the cucumbers, too, that give this salad and side dish a great crunchiness!

Roasted Veggie and Kale Salad

On a chilly day a few weeks ago, roasted veggies sounded really good to me! When I was buying the veggies, I also spotted a large bag of chopped kale that was reasonably priced, so I thought I’d make a Roasted Veggie and Kale Salad! It’s a great salad to make, not only on those chilly end-of-winter and early spring days, but all spring and summer long. It’s a wonderful way to use your garden veggies or veggies you buy from your local farmers’ market! If you don’t grow your own kale, I recommend using a bag of pre-chopped kale for this salad, just to save some time in your prep work.

Fresh Strawberry Bread

Fresh strawberries are the best! And I love making things with them too, whether it’s a smoothie or a baked treat. Like this Fresh Strawberry Bread—it’s so good and moist, and has lots of little chopped strawberry chunks in it that give it a great strawberry flavor. This quick bread is great for a spring or summer breakfast or brunch, but it’s sweet enough that it can also work as a dessert, too—try it with a scoop of strawberry ice cream on top!
