Strawberry dish ideas for Eid-Al-Adha

Nothing can beat our chocolate addiction… Except our crush on strawberries.

In the medieval times, these little bright red berries were used to be the harbinger of spring and joy and the tradition continues till date. The strawberry season is currently in its full swing. They couldn’t be riper, juicier and sweeter and while we can happily snack them solo, these gorgeous babies deserve a centre place at our Eid-Al-Adha dinners.

If you share our love for strawberries then scroll down to see some amazing (healthy, healthy-ish and downright decadent) things to make this festive season. From drinks to desserts to salsa, we’ve got it all.

1. Add them to your salads.

Strawberries go beautifully well with baby spinach, pineapples, apples and poppy seeds.

Add them to your salad to amp up the colour and healthy nutrients. After all, you won't be getting much from the greasy curries anyways.

2. How about a homemade strawberry sorbet?

Ripe strawberries sweetened with raw honey for an easy, fresh, frozen treat — we're hooked for life!

All you need is a blender, two ingredients, and five minutes for this refreshing, and healthy strawberry sorbet with mint.

3. Some strawberry salsa with kebabs? Yes, please!

Sweet strawberries, bright avocados, red onions, cilantro, and spicy jalapeños make a heavenly summer salsa you can whip up in minutes.

A perfect combo to go with your lamb kebab skewers.

4. Add them to your water.

You definitely need something more than water to gulp down all the heavy meaty dishes in this heat. Instead of packing up on fizzy drinks, how about turning your water into a refreshing sweet treat?

A perfect glass full of colour and health, it tastes as delicious as it looks.

5. Finish the day with a winner strawberry-Nutella dessert.

A grand feast deserves a grand ending.

You can go for a soft-layered chocolate cake topped with crushed strawberries with a hint of melt-in-your-mouth Nutella in between. Or you keep it simple with deviled strawberries dipped and coated in Nutella.

The point is, you can never go wrong with Nutella and strawberries in the same sentence.
