Bright, sweet and a bona fide superfood, strawberries have earned their place as one of America’s favorite fruits! In honor of National Strawberry Day on Feb. 27, we’re taking a look at six Peach Valley picks to satisfy your strawberry cravings. Dig in!
When you’re craving the cool crunch of a salad—plus fresh, sweet ingredients that are sure to deliver a flavorful pick-me-up—our Summer Salad is for you. Featuring fresh mixed greens, mandarin oranges, strawberries, blueberries, toasted almonds, parmesan cheese and our housemade peach ginger dressing, this dish delivers a taste of summertime all year long. (Plus, it’s part of our U Pick 2 Menu, so you can pair it with another Peach Valley favorite with ease!)
Rich in immune-boosting vitamin C, antioxidants and heart-healthy benefits, strawberries pack a powerful punch—making them a worthy player in our Superfood Breakfast! Enjoy them alongside housemade granola, fresh banana, blueberries and a raspberry-blueberry compote drizzle atop an organic chia seed and coconut milk pudding. The perfect fuel-up for morning yoga, or refreshing meal on a beach day with friends, our Superfood Breakfast is a photo-worthy dish that looks as good as it tastes.
Flavorful Fruit Bowls
Craving some good-old-fashioned fruit? We have two delicious bowls serving up strawberry goodness—our Seasonal Fruit Bowl, which features strawberries alongside honeydew, cantaloupe, red seedless grapes, honeydew, blueberries and bananas; and our RW&B Fruit Bowl, a simply satisfying combination of strawberries, blueberries and bananas that’s sure to please.
You can make this classic brunch and breakfast staple even better by adding some strawberries on top! Paired with powdered sugar and warm syrup, it simply doesn’t get much better than that.
Orchard Fresh Apple Fritters
Our Orchard Fresh Apple Fritters are famous for their Granny Smith goodness—but another fruit helps bring this delicious dessert full circle! We serve our Fritters alongside a sweet, brown sugar-scented strawberry yogurt for a decadent final flourish. Dip your fritters in and enjoy!
Sparkling Rosé Sangria
We can’t forget about drinks! “Cheers” to friends, family and delicious fruity treats with our Sparkling Rosé Sangria, a vibrant blend of fresh grapes, strawberries, and sparkling wine that’s sure to brighten up your day and your taste buds. (Tip: Try this bubbly drink with a plate of Chocolate Chip Pancakes! Strawberry and chocolate go hand-in-hand, while the effervescence of the sangria will help complement the decadence of your dish!)
