  • 1 cup  balsamic vinegar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of  salt
  • 4-5 stalks asparagus, ends cut off and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 5-6 cups spinach, chopped or baby spinach
  • 4-5 radishes, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced, plus additional for garnish
  • 4 oz soft goat cheese

Directions:

To make the balsamic vinegar reduction: add 1 cup of balsamic vinegar in a small pan. Bring to a simmer and reduce until syrupy, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add asparagus and blanch for few minutes. Remove from boiling water and immerse in iced or cold water.  (This stops the cooking process to preserve the asparagus’ crisp texture and color). Once cooled, lay on a paper towel and pat dry. Set aside.

To make dressing:  whisk together balsamic vinegar reduction, extra virgin olive oil and salt.

In a large platter or bowl:  toss together all vegetables and strawberries. Top with goat cheese.  Drizzle dressing on top and garnish with more strawberries, if desired.

 

Chocolate Strawberry Pizza

Enjoy strawberries in a variety of ways while they’re at their peak from April until June.  This easy, elegant dessert will be a crowd pleaser at your next gathering or perfect to sip with Champagne for Mother’s Day.

Since I wanted to add chocolate, I decided to make this with just strawberries, but you can add other fruits to your liking or omit the chocolate..

Serves 8-10

Ingredients:

  • 1 package refrigerated sugar cookies
  • 3-4 cups strawberries (washed, dried, hulled and sliced)
  • 8 oz mascarpone  or cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate ( chopped) or chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly spray 12- 14-inch pizza pan or baking sheet with  cooking spray. Cut cookie dough into 1/4-inch slices and arrange in a single layer on the pan. Press down evenly with your fingers to cover the pan. Bake approximately 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, combine mascarpone cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread over cookie crust.

Arrange fruit over cream cheese in circles or be creative and come up with different designs!

 To melt chocolate, add chocolate and heavy cream in bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until chocolate is melted.

Once cooled, add some of the chocolate in a ziplog or piping bag. If using a ziplog, cut a slit in one side of the corner.  If you don’t want to take this extra step, just use a spoon to drizzle  chocolate on top.

Drizzle chocolate over fruit.  Cut into wedges if using a pizza pan or in squares if using a baking sheet.

Use the rest of the chocolate in the bowl to dip your whole strawberries. Enjoy!
