In honor of our very recent strawberry launch, we would like to present you with a post dedicated to this versatile berry. But first, as Valentine’s Day is near, we must not forget to talk a bit about love. To us, here at Nature Fresh Farms, strawberries are synonymous with love. Not only are they delicious and healthy, but the history of the strawberry and its relation to love dates back to Ancient Rome. Strawberries were considered the symbol of Venus, the goddess of love, thanks to their heart shape, color, and sweet taste. That being said, we are excited to share with you five new strawberry centered creations that will get you into the Valentine’s Day spirit. From a Strawberry Charcuterie Board and a Strawberry Balsamic Flank Steak to a Strawberry Hibiscus Agua Fresca, we’ve got some scrumptious recipes that will take center stage on this love-filled holiday.
First, start your night off with a delicious and hydrating Strawberry and Hibiscus Agua Fresca. Made with chopped strawberries, hibiscus leaves, and fresh mint, this delightfully refreshing drink will kick off your Valentine’s Day celebrations: Strawberry and Hibiscus Agua Fresca | Nature Fresh Farms
Next, it’s time for a bright and colorful appetizer that will not only wow your tastebuds but will delight your eyes. Strawberry Balsamic Bruschetta is gorgeous, simple, and incredibly tasty. The combination of freshly toasted bread with luscious ricotta cheese, fresh strawberries, and balsamic vinegar is not to be missed: Strawberry Balsamic Bruschetta | Nature Fresh Farms
You can’t have a full meal experience without a salad, and we have just the one for you! Our Strawberry and Cucumber Salad with Lemon Cream is just what the evening ordered. Juicy red strawberries mixed with crunchy cucumbers and then topped with a delightful lemon cream makes for an unforgettable dish: Strawberry Cucumber Salad with Lemon Cream | Nature Fresh Farms
Now for the main course, we have something very unique and decadent that also shows off the versatility of the strawberry. Our Strawberry Balsamic Flank Steak will wow your guests and show off your creativity in the kitchen. Perfectly grilled steak rubbed with a brown sugar spice mix and topped with strawberries, balsamic, and gorgonzola cheese will be the talk of the evening: Strawberry Balsamic Flank Steak | Nature Fresh Farms
Lastly, for the finale, we’ve got a fun and interesting take on dessert – a Strawberry Charcuterie Board! Encompassing some of the flavors we all associate with Valentine’s Day, this board features strawberries (of course!), a chocolate dip, cookies, marshmallow fluff, and a few other decadent treats. We loved creating this recipe for you and were excited to think outside of the traditional cheese board box: Strawberry Charcuterie Board | Nature Fresh Farms
