Move over avocado toast, there’s a new kid in town. While it takes a little more effort than simply smashing an avocado on toast, there’s something just so dreamy about roasted strawberries paired with creamy fresh ricotta. We love the fresh basil on this, too.

2. Strawberry Salad with Balsamic

Just when you thought you couldn’t love a Caprese salad more. This sweeter take hits all the marks, with strawberries, mozzarella, avocado, tomatoes, toasted pecans, basil, and balsamic vinegar. So refreshing and flavorful, this dish would make a memorable summer BBQ side.

3. Strawberry Salsa

This focaccia recipe with sliced strawberries, loads of basil, caramelized onions, and balsamic vinegar has us drooling. It’s as delicious as it is beautiful. Swap in white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose to add more fiber and nutrients, if you like.
