Summer is the time for strawberries and Roche Bros. is finding satisfying ways for you to serve them at every meal:
Yogurt Parfaits with Strawberries: Layer creamy vanilla or plain yogurt with sliced strawberries for a beautiful breakfast presentation.
French Toast with Strawberries and Cream: Make thick, cinnamony brioche French toast, and top it with strawberries and fresh whipped cream.
Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Walnuts and Goat Cheese: A sweet way to eat your greens! Dark green, leafy spinach with sweet strawberries, toasted walnuts and goat cheese gives you just the right balance of earthy and sweet.
Strawberries on your Sandwich: A chicken salad sandwich gets a sweet, fruity boost with strawberries mixed in. Or try cut strawberries added to a grilled cheese. They go especially well with fontina or gruyere.
Strawberry Balsamic Chicken: Cut strawberries into small pieces and soak them in balsamic vinegar. Marinate boneless chicken breasts in the balsamic-strawberry mixture with olive oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and bake in the oven. The chicken will come out with a flavorful glaze. You can reduce any leftover marinade in a pan and drizzle it on the plate.
Grilled Fish with Strawberry Salsa: Spice up strawberries and cut the sweetness with fresh lime, cayenne, chili peppers and cilantro in a salsa that will brighten up fish on the grill this summer.
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries: For dessert to impress your guests, make your own chocolate-covered strawberries. Melt rich, dark chocolate, semisweet or milk chocolate. Dip whole strawberries and place them on a parchment-lined tray in the refrigerator. Dress them up with chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips or shredded coconut.
Strawberries, Cream and More: Strawberries are ready-made to pair with fresh whipped cream, and that in and of itself makes a great dessert. Take this match made in heaven and spread it between layers of Angel Food Cake. And don’t stop with cream. Mascarpone, ricotta and pudding are all great vehicles for enjoying strawberries.
