Head to the farmer's market this month, and you should have your pick of dozens of little baskets of sweet, juicy strawberries. You'll want to grab a pint (or three) because these berries pack just as much nutrition as they do flavor. One cup of sliced strawberries contains 130 percent of the daily value of vitamin C and is loaded with calcium and fiber. The best part: That filling cup will cost you just 53 calories. You could just eat these sweet berries on their own, but these fun recipes really highlight this seasonal fruit by harnessing its flavors at peak freshness.
