You guys! Strawberry season is just around the corner, and it’s something we look forward to all year long. Really: All. Year. Long. And then it’s over in a blink of the eye, s you had better believe have a plan for all those gorgeous berries, namely these sweet and savory strawberry recipes. Think: a strawberry salsa you’ll want to put on everything, strawberry pasta salad (it works!), and strawberry focaccia — yes, please!

1. Roasted Strawberry Ricotta Toast from Healthy Little Vittles

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 fresh ricotta.
