Snackshot of the day: Strawberries

In the U.S., strawberries are typically grown in California and Florida.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a pint of strawberries. Strawberries don't come into season until spring or early summer, but National Strawberry Day falls in February. Maybe they're just trying to get us excited for strawberry season? Well, mission accomplished. Strawberries are great for breakfast with yogurt, granola, and a mix of other berries; in dessert to add a bit of freshness; or in salads for extra sweetness.
