Dipped Strawberries

There aren't many things easier than taking fresh fruit and dipping it into something for a quick, cool dessert.

Growing up in the Midwest, it never occurred to me that perhaps this could be weird. We just always ate strawberries this way. Once we moved to Nevada, I figured out that West Coast people were not on board this concept, so to speak.

After I moved out on my own, to be honest, I sort of forgot about eating strawberries this way. It wasn't until I was on a business trip that sent me to Illinois that I was reminded. I was at a nice restaurant and they had it on the dessert menu. My first thought was seeing a simple fruit dessert offered at a restaurant was pretty novel. My second thought was that I really liked this combination as a kid and should remember to eat it at home.

4 Strawberries per person, whole, washed well (make sure to get under the leaves for hiding sand)
2 Tablespoons Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons Brown sugar

1. Serve…
