Strawberry, goats cheese and quinoa salad

Strawberry, goats cheese and quinoa salad

The River Cafe’s suggestion of eating strawberries with balsamic was the first time I’d considered strawberries as anything but a dessert-only affair. Once you overcome the initial shock, it opens up a lot of culinary doors – and many a salad recipe. After all, tomatoes are a fruit, so why not add strawberries to your […]
