It’s summer but our culinary team isn’t on vacation, they’re keeping busy in the kitchen dreaming up delicious new recipes for you! Check out seven brand-new ways to use your fresh farmstand summer strawberries!

No. 1: Grant's Strawberry Salsa

For this sweet and savory salsa, Grant blends strawberries with cilantro, honey, lime juice, onion and jalapeno. He suggests you serve it with chips, or with any grilled meat.

No. 2: Grant's Strawberry Shortcake

Grant macerates his strawberries to help break them down, by squeezing lemon juice and sprinkling sugar over the berries. He makes his own shortcake with a secret ingredient – sour cream!

No. 3: Strawberries and Mozzarella

For a clever summer appetizer plate, arrange sliced fresh mozzarella and top with baby strawberries, mint or basil, course salt and olive oil.

No. 4: Grant's Strawberry Milk

This is a perfect treat for the whole family! Grant just blends up milk with strawberries, vanilla, sugar and a smidge of salt for a perfectly refreshing summer treat!

No. 5: Jeanette's Strawberry Rosé Spritz

For this summer cocktail, Jeanette marinates fresh strawberries in a bottle of rose for a couple of hours or overnight, then strains out the berries, purees them, and adds them back in, and tops with seltzer. She then serves over ice. How refreshing!

No. 6: Jeanette's Strawberry Balsamic BBQ Sauce Glazed Chicken Wings

For these delicious wings, Jeannette uses strawberries, balsamic vinegar and red wine as the base for her BBQ sauce.

No. 7: Matty's Strawberry Freezer Jam

This bonus recipe comes to us courtesy of Rachael Ray Show staffer Matty. This jam requires no cooking and is stored in the freezer!
