Recipe: Grilled Chicken Cutlets with Strawberry Salsa

This fresh and light dish will be your go-to supper this season. The chicken cutlets get a big boost of flavor from a marinade of pineapple juice, ground ancho chile, cumin, vinegar, and oil. Be sure to allow enough time for the chicken to chill in the marinade for 30 minutes before grilling. You'll probably want to make an extra batch of our strawberry salsa to serve alongside. We also love to drizzle Tangy Strawberry Barbecue Sauce over the chicken.

Recipe: Strawberry Biscuits

The Southern staple is given a fruity update with the addition of chopped, fresh strawberries. To ensure the butter doesn't get too soft when forming the dough, we like to freeze it before grating with the large holes of a box grater. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes. Be sure to mix up Basil-Honey Butter to serve alongside. These biscuits are sweet enough to serve for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert.
