Product of the month - strawberries

Strawberries and cream or ice cream. Oh yes.

Strawberry cheesecake. Mmmmmmmm.

Strawberry crumble. Amazing.

But why not try something different with our prettiest fruit?

How about strawberry and spinach salad. It's easy. Just combine 500g spinach with 1 large punnet of strawberries, sliced finely, and a handful of toasted pecan nuts.

And dress with raspberry vinegar, sugar, 1 teaspoon of mustard powder, vegetable oil of your choice and 2 teaspoons poppy seeds. Season to taste (you don't really need any with this salad, bt it's up to you).

It may sound like an odd combination but it's addictive.

And for the grown ups, it's strawberry daquiri time!

Blend 4 ripe strawberries with 2 teaspoons of white sugar, 35ml of white rum, a teaspoon of strawberry liqueur or strawberry schnapps if you have it, the juice of a lime and an ice cube. When the mixture is well blended pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with half a strawberry.
Chin chin!
