Strawberry Sauce
Serves: 1.5 cups
This fresh strawberry sauce is super quick and easy to whip up and goes great as a topping for so many different dishes!
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 3 Tbs sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  1. Place strawberries, sugar and salt in a bowl and stir until combined. Let mixture sit for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. After 30 minutes, transfer strawberries and juices to a small-medium saucepan over medium heat. After cooking 3 minutes, start to mash the strawberries with a spatula, leaving some chunks of whole strawberry left. *Do not use anything metal to stir/mash with if you're using a non-stick pan.
  3. Continue mashing strawberries and stirring until sauce has thickened and is syrupy, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from heat and stir in the lemon juice and zest (if using).
  5. Let the sauce cool for a few minutes before pouring into a serving bowl. Either serve right away or refrigerate for later.
