May 26, 2021RecipesRecipes: Spring & Summer
Warmer weather means welcoming back seasonal salads!
The colors in this dish make it oh so pretty and provide a bounty of nutrients. Strawberries are the highlight with their sweet taste and large amount of vitamin C to promote skin and immune health. One serving of strawberries has over 150% of your recommended daily intake! Strawberries also have additional antioxidants from a class of phytochemicals (chemicals found in plants) called anthocyanins.
Enjoy this colorful dish as a side or consider adding more nuts, cheese, or chicken to make it a Plate Method meal!
