I would mix them with other fresh fruit - blueberries, kiwi, peaches and more - in a fresh fruit salad. This goes well with any meal, or as a great snack.

I simply love strawberries! I love to eat them plain as they are, in dishes, and used as toppings on my favorite breakfast food, dessert, yogurt or salad. I also like putting them in my smoothies with a variety of other berries, acai and bananas I would make homemade strawberry jam (which I've never done before), strawberry butter, strawberry muffins and shortcake. Occasionally, I like to indulge myself and make sangrias so I'd throw some strawberries and fresh peach halves in and let them soak in all the goodness overnight. Strawberry cheesecake, chocolate dipped strawberries, strawberry crepes, salad, milkshakes, strawberry everything... I'd make it all!

Strawberries are my FAVORITE fruit in the UNIVERSE! If I had a kitchen full I would make strawberry lemonade pops (using popsicle molds), Strawberry shortcake, Strawberry lemon cake for my coworkers, and snack on plain strawberries all day with my boyfriend and neighbors (and sometimes add a touch of vanilla sugar) because ya gotta share the wealth! The last thing I would do is make some strawberry rhubarb pies. Before my grandmother passed she and I used to make strawberry rhubarb pies together,so I would find her old recipe and remake it for my family.

I'd eat as many as I could stand, just plain. I'd dip some in chocolate. I'd make strawberry pie and strawberry smoothies and dehydrate some for some strawberry filled trail mix. I'd make strawberry scrub for my skin and strawberry sorbet for my son.

Bought the strawberries on Friday & have been having a feast w/ them. First I combined strawberries and watermelon in the blender & just put them into Popsicle molds for a refreshing treat w/ no added sugar. Then lunch was a delicious salad. I made my dressing with braggs apple cider vinegar, 3 crush berries and olave basil olive oil. Then I wash 3 cups of spinach leaves and removed any large stems and topped that with a few slice berries. I cooked 3 strips lightlife smoked tempeh and crumbled that on top., poured the dressing on and sat down & had a feast!

I would make a strawberry syrup to drizzle over mascarpone-stuffed french toast, covered with sprinkles of cacao nibs, and finished with few mint leaves. I'd add a refreshing beverage of Perrier over ice blended with strawberry puree and a couple drops of aged balsamic vinegar. And for dessert, I'd blend strawberries, mangoes, plain Greek yogurt, and sucanat for a tasty sorbet. Oh, and I'd dip the left over strawberries in a dark chocolate sauce with sweet ancho chili, chipotle, all spice, and cinnamon!

I would try the Strawberry Melon Gazpacho recipe on your website, freeze some to put in smoothies, freeze some to make ice cream made through our green star juicer, and of course my family and I would just eat some like nature packaged them. :-)

If I had an unlimited quantity of lucious organic strawberries, I would do what I did today, make Strawberry Jam and I would share with all my friends!

If I had a kitchen full of strawberries, I would host a summer kick off party at my apartment complex and would make frozen strawberry margaritas for everyone. It would be EPIC.

Memories of a house-hunting trip long ago to New Orleans. I think I was 5 years old at the time, and strawberry-obsessed. Each morning, I would run down the hotel stairs to breakfast, and ask for strawberries. The first two days, the staff told me "the strawberries ain't up yet". I think they learned to set some aside, because for the rest of the week, the strawberries were up and on my plate. "The strawberries is up, miss." Fast forward to my teens, when my obsession extended to fraises des bois. Same situation, except late morning at a hotel on the Cote d'Azure. Likewise, I believe they may have started ordering strawberries, since I depleted their stock in the first few days. I remember sitting at a patio table each day, in a bathing suit and towel, defending my plate from the bees. Is it any wonder I attended a college that celebrates May Day with strawberries and champagne? And now, I have strawberries growing in my yard. The ones under the trees belong to the dogs, and they rush out each morning eager to see if any are ripe. They know to wait. Once in awhile, one returns to the house chewing a strawberry, as the other three dogs tail behind looking disappointed. The fraises des bois in the pot are mine, but they're eaten one at a time, at the moment of peak ripeness. Never enough to cook with. As for what I would make if I had enough berries, the list is limitless. I prefer my berry recipes simple, to highlight the taste. Fool, Eton mess, strawberries & cream, strawberries & powdered sugar, jam, glaze, margaritas, salads, soup, dips ... face masks ... so many recipes, so little time. In truth, though, I'm most likely to slice them, create a several foot high pile, cover them with powdered sugar, and dive in.

What would i do with that many strawberries? Nothing! My two year old grandson eats them as fast as I can wash them. There wouldn't be any left to use in a recipe. Actually I am a purist myself. I don't eat a lot of sugary treats so I like them as is for the most part. How ever for special occasions like a family picnic, I will sprinkle organic turbinado sugar over the hulled washed and dried berries, let them sit for a few hours in the refrigerator to macerate and then serve them over a slice of pound cake (my mother's homemade is the best but store bought will do in a pinch) with or without real whipped cream depending on my mood. It's very easy and quick with only a little prep time for the berries.

I would make my famous strawberry champagne punch and give it to my party guests. First I freeze them. Then let them thaw a bit, throw them in the blender until they are well blended. Pour the frozen strawberry mix into a punch bowl with a bottle of your favorite champagne and/or seltzer. Cheers!

If I had an endless amount of strawberries I would have strawberry shortcake every night and have my Mom make her awesome strawberry jam that she makes and cans for us every year to give us at Christmas.

When Whole Foods had the $1.99 organic strawberries last Friday I bought 5 packs and made the most AWESOME vegan lemon coconut bundt cake recipe from the Veganomicon... it only took me and my boyfriend 3 days to eat all 5lbs and the bundt cake! Honestly I would totally make a bunch of bundt cakes and top them with organic strawberries and share it with my family & friends because it was just soooo good!

LOVE STRAWBERRIES! I bought a full 12 lbs last Friday, which are happily nestled in my freezer. I enjoy making chocolate dipped strawberries for my family but I follow a pretty strict Paleo eating program, so I eat them in my spinach salad and in my smoothies. I'm also experimenting with a Paleo version of sorbet this weekend (just fruit - nothing else!).

If I had an unlimited amount of strawberries, I would make strawberry shortcake and eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Instead of biscuits I would use angel food cake to cut down on calories!

I would just eat them one by one right out of the container! I love fresh strawberries and so do my kids. If they are lucky, I might share some with them! We'd probably end up making strawberry shortcake or our strawberry cake-white cake on the bottom, strawberries on top and then whipped cream to top it off! My mouth is watering just thinking about strawberries!

First off a strawberry-banana smoothie. Then yogurt with a berry medley and granola on top. Maybe a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese for lunch. A chocolate-dipped berry (or five) sometime mid-afternoon. And then maybe I would just skip dinner altogether and move right on to the homemade strawberry ice cream. What a delicious day!!!
