May is one of my favorite months of the year. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and everything is in bloom (just ask my allergies). Here’s yet another reason to love May–it’s National Strawberry Month! Strawberries are as delicious as they are beautiful, so here are a few ideas of how to use them this spring and summer.
1. This Strawberry, Farro, and Feta Salad is a nutrient powerhouse and one of my favorite summer salads. Just combine 2 cups of fresh greens (like spinach or arugula), with a 1/2 cup of cooked farro (or another healthy whole grain like quinoa or barley), 1 oz of crumbled feta cheese, a handful of sliced strawberries. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and enjoy!
