      Strawberry Salsa

      This fresh, sweet and hot salsa is a perfect complement to grilled

      fish or chicken.

      chicken, fish, or turkey, or as a dip with taco chips.


      Strawberry Spinach Chicken Salad

      Any leftover cooked chicken or turkey, or ham for that matter, can be

      used in this easy main dish salad recipe.

      mix well. Drizzle over salads and top with almonds.

      Serves 4


      Easy Strawberry Shortcake

      My mother always made this recipe for the Fourth of July. It followed

      a wonderful meal of grilled hamburgers or steak and her fabulous

      potato salad. But it’s a great dessert any time of the year.


      1 loaf frozen pound cake, thawed

      3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced

      1 cup heavy cream

      3 Tbsp. powdered sugar

      1 tsp. vanilla


      Using a potato masher, mash half of the strawberries. Stir in the

      sliced strawberries and chill. Beat cream with powdered sugar and

      vanilla. Slice pound cake, place each piece on serving plate, top

      with strawberry mixture and a dollop of cream.

      Serve immediately. You can make your own pound cake instead of using

      the frozen version if you’d like, but the frozen one (I love Sara

      Lee) is so good, why bother? Serves 8


      Strawberry Melon Salad

      You can use honeydew melons instead of the watermelon in this

      beautiful, refreshing salad.


      3/4 cup low fat lemon yogurt

      1 tsp. lemon juice

      1 tsp. sugar

      1/8 tsp. cinnamon

      2 cups watermelon balls

      2 cups cantaloupe balls

      2 cups sliced strawberries


      In small bowl, mix yogurt, juice and cinnamon and blend well with

      whisk. Combine remaining ingredients in salad bowl and drizzle with

      salad dressing. Cover and chill until serving. 4 servings


      Frosty Float Drink

      Use whatever fresh fruit looks fabulous in your market. You can also

      vary the sherbet flavor and even the canned fruit to make a whole new



      1 cup sliced strawberries or blueberries

      1 cup whole milk

      2 cups strawberry sherbet

      8 oz. can crushed pineapple or sliced pears, undrained


      Combine strawberries, milk, 1 cup of the sherbet, and the undrained

      pineapple in blender or food processor. Cover and blend until smooth.

      Pour into four glasses, and top each with another scoop of the

      remaining sherbet.
