It's summertime, it's hot outside and no one wants to be spending a ton of time in the kitchen! If you're having a few friends over or you just want to make your night at home a little more special, this recipe I created in collaboration with California Strawberries will definitely hit the spot! The sweetness from the strawberries, the savory flavors from the walnut and blue cheese combo, and the saltiness from the strips of prosciutto wrapped around the berries make a bite-sized treat that is bursting with flavor. Once you see how easy my Blue Cheese Stuffed Strawberries are to make, you'll be enjoying them throughout the summer and all year long!
Recently, I got together with my amiga, Yvette, of Muy Bueno Cookbook in Colorado, and we had a total blast creating our recipes and this video with beautiful, seasonal California Strawberries. Yvette's Strawberry and Pineapple Mojito is the perfect cocktail for these warm (ok, HOT) summer nights and it pairs really well with my appetizer!
