Women in the City Talk Summer Food
When I think of summer food I think of juicy salads and fresh berries, and yes as a member of the Women In The City Team pointed out it is also barbecues…
However for today’s post I want to focus on salads and summer berries – And what a combination!
During the radio show I asked the team if they ever put berries, in particular I love strawberries, in their salads and none of them had.
People, you are missing out!
Next time you create your favourite salad try throwing in a handful of chopped strawberries. They are divine, just imagine eating your salad and then getting a refreshing burst of sweet juiciness as you bite into the strawberry – wow!
Or if you didn’t want to add them directly to your salad, why not transform your salad dressings with this seasons berries. You could try adding the following combinations to your standard dressing:
- Blueberry and Lemon
- Raspberry and lime
- Strawberry and basil
I’m a firm believer that salads should not be boring, they are light, crisp, refreshing and with the addition of some fruity berries to play with they will delight your taste buds and reawaken your senses. (Not to mention get you feeling sexy for the beach, but that’s for another post….)
So what are you waiting for – get creating!
Of course this all sounds delicious, but I want you to take action – get creative and share your favourite fruit that you add to your salads or dressings in the comments box below – don’t be shy…
Barbecues Vs salads and strawberries in salads or strawberries in wine – these were our radio side chats ha ha
