I remember my trip to France when I happened upon a tiny little strawberry stand in the middle of a small village close to the ocean. I have never had anything so delicious in my life! Luscious and sweet, I ate them fresh out of hand and took some home to bake into goodies like these Strawberry Cream Scones.

You’ll want to enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, beverages and desserts. Remember, they are not just for fruit salads and sweet dishes; strawberries are sensational in a wide range of foods from Spring Salad with Strawberries and Creamy Orange Avocado Dressing to Cucumber Sandwiches with Strawberries and Watercress to Pineapple and Strawberry Breakfast Sandwiches — and plenty more. 

When shopping, look for firm red berries, no yellow or mushy soft spots. Keep them dry in the refrigerator and don’t wash them until you are ready to eat them. If possible, serve strawberries at room temperature for greater flavor and a heavenly fragrance. Want to experiment? Get inspired by these serious strawberry sensations:
