Since the strawberries are in the market, I go to the local grocery store to purchase packets of strawberries simply to munch and to try different recipes. Today’s recipe is a simple one – Chunky Strawberry Salsa.
You can have this salsa for breakfast or top it on pancakes or your regular oat meal and have. We loved eating it with oat meal for breakfast. It gives the much needed nutrition needed to kick start the day. You can also serve it during lunch as a salad or have it in the evening as snacks with a glass of strawberry milkshake.
It is healthy as strawberries are rich in Vitamin C and are packed with antioxidants. They promote overall health as they are rich in folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, magnesium and other nutrients. Consumption of strawberries helps fight cancer, helps make the skin wrinkle free, promotes eye health, regulates blood pressure and fights bad cholesterol. These are few health benefits that I have listed, but there are many more. Hence don’t miss them this season when you can get plenty of strawberries. You can eat them in a variety of ways – make strawberry jam or add them to kheer and make phirni.
