Meatless Monday: Fresh Strawberries With Ginger-Honey Greek Yogurt

Divas, big news!  I just booked a trip to NYC this weekend.  That's right, Big Apple, here I come!  I'm meeting up with my parents, The Original Diva and The Wine Lover, as well as my San Francisco host, The Godfather.  We have plans to see plays, tool around the city... and eat, of course!   Momofuku is on my mind... So stay tuned to read all about my trip.

In the meantime, here's another great Meatless Monday dish for Fresh Strawberries With Ginger-Honey Greek Yogurt!  I whipped it up for dessert to cap off a lovely lunch gathering, but it would be great for breakfast, too.  I don't have to tell what what a healthy option this is--fresh strawberries, loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, paired with rich (but fat-free) Greek Yogurt, flavored with raw honey and powdered ginger.  Yogurt is considered one of the world's healthiest foods, loaded with protein and good bacteria.  And if you want to get extra fancy, throw chopped walnuts onto the yogurt.  Oh, yum!

To serve, place the strawberries in a bowl.  Then, spoon the yogurt into a bowl and drizzle with a little honey.  Garnish with the mint.  Eat the strawberries by dipping fondue style into the yogurt.  Enjoy!
