Its almost strawberry-picking time in Georgia. And we are excited! Not only are strawberries delicious by themselves, but they are super for a myriad of recipes – like this one! Mint makes a perfect compliment to the juicy berries, adding a little pop of flavor to the dressing. And mint isn’t just a pretty herb with flavor but packs a lot of nutrition as well. It helps with allergies, nausea, indigestion, and IBS.
We hope you enjoy this delicious dressing this week!
