Strawberries are in season! I live close to a pick your own farm, and I’ve been enjoying them every chance that I can. They don’t last long after they have been picked, so I’ve been making all things strawberry after almost filling up this box the other day. I’m happy to report that I finished up the last of the berries over the weekend when I made another batch of Mixed Berry Crumble.
It’s really hard to resist an easy meal that consists of grilled meat that’s topped with salsa, and I knew some of these berries were going to go on top of chicken. I chopped up the berries while the chicken was marinating, and made a quick salad while the chicken was cooking. This dinner was literally on the table within 20 minutes.
