Strawberry Quinoa Salad Wrap with Maple Tahini Dressing | LocalSavour.com

Top 5 Strawberry Recipes ~ I am not afraid to admit that I am a super fan of strawberries and I have been ever since I can remember. I could eat them straight outta the garden or those cute little green pint baskets that you see them in at the markets. Sweet and juicy, and the only fruit that wears it’s heart on its sleeve aka its seeds are on the outside. Pair them up with some fresh mint or basil and something magical happens. These little happy berries can be served anytime of day really –– from snacking to breakfast to even be included on your dinner plate. Here are a few of my favorite ways to devour them up during this season of berry bliss:
