Did you know you need to clean your melons before cutting?

Just in case you didn’t know! Make sure to clean your melons before cutting in them! Whenever you are cutting whole fruit, especially melons, you’ll want to wash the outside of the fruit in case there are any harmful germs on the outside of the fruit. Of course you aren’t eating the melon skin, but you are cutting through it, and the knife can transfer bacteria from the skin into the inner flesh as it gets dragged through! Simple scrub with a vegetable brush with warm water as you would potatoes!

      This vinaigrette screams summertime! Made with fresh strawberries, tart balsamic vinegar and salt and fresh ground black pepper to round it all out it will be perfect for a spring or summer salad! I also like to use it as a marinade for chicken of for a tart and sweet dip for fruits or veggies. 

      It’s a great way to use up all those fresh, ripe strawberries! They can be slightly overripe, just be sure to test a strawberry from your batch to make sure it tastes good on it’s own.
