Few things delight the senses like sweet and juicy Ontario strawberries, which are as versatile as they are delicious. With that in mind, we’ve put together four recipes featuring this elegant berry inspired by international flavours.
For instance, Grilled Prosciutto Strawberry Bundles highlight Italian-style prosciutto, along with goat cheese (or, if you prefer, cream cheese). Sweet, savoury, tangy and salty unite in these scrumptious bundles of joy.
Strawberry Arugula Quinoa Salad echoes the Mediterranean region, where peppery arugula greens have been grown since Roman times, and South America, home to most of the world’s quinoa. Completing this superb salad are Ontario basil, mint and parsley.
Of course, strawberries excel in desserts. Strawberry Meringue Ice Cream Pots combine pieces of meringue nests (invented by the French for the vacherin dessert), vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate – a match made in culinary heaven.
Strawberries add a bright, fruity note to that quintessentially American campfire classic, s’mores. Strawberry S’mores Sundaes are a lip-smacking construction of layered graham wafers, mini-marshmallows, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and Ontario’s superior strawberries.
